It's not exactly the same. Maxpect method scales up the image until _one_ of 
the side gets to the maximum size of the desktop. While the other one will be 
shorter than the screen. 

This other method scales the image up, until _both_ sides are equal or bigger 
than the desktop size. The advantage is that you get no empty spaces on 

see this photo as example:

It clearly shows the difference between maxpect and this method. Also if you 
can see the scale method, that one distorts the image (although that's not 
very clear in this photo)
