Roaming Desktop limitations

In Windows 8 the Desktop Backgrounds which exist for the first account you link to your Microsoft Account, become your roaming desktop backgrounds. What that means is any other computer you sign into with your Microsoft Account gets those desktop backgrounds too. But there is one caveat; the Microsoft Account will only roam up to 20 pictures. As far as I can tell there’s no way to configure which 20, so it’s crap shoot. Better than nothing, and I suspect that the number will increase as time goes on.

Sadly for me I have roughly 60 pictures as my primary wallpapers, and hope that Microsoft will bump the limit soon.
