Ok, call me a weirdo, but I was wondering if there is some free software out there somewhere which transforms your desktop into more of an actual desktop? Hard to explain, but I would like to stick scalable photos on, rotatble, maybe some notes, videos, links, images. So, it becomes more like an actual desktop rather than just a place of icons, widgets and a wallpaper.

I know, its an odd request, but surely there is something.

If BumpTop wasn't discontinued when they were acquired by the Goog, I would have recommended that. Check out Rainmeter. There is a huge theming community for Rainmeter on Deviantart.

Rainmeter, isn't bad, however it still feels a little tooo structured and technical. – David Oct 10 '11 at 10:39
