I have some animated gif that I want to put on my desktop.

Do you know some sort of software to do this? I would like them to be in the form of movable panels (such as done in the "fences", but the fences for the icons, they can not put a background image, the more animated)

Doesn't Windows have this built in, under the name of "Active Desktop"? (Speaking of, which operating system, @Fedcomp?) – grawity Mar 7 '12 at 20:58
Active Desktop removed after win98 – Fedcomp Mar 7 '12 at 21:00
So which OS do you have then, please? – slhck Mar 7 '12 at 21:14
@Fedcomp: Uh, removed? It still exists in Windows XP. Makes for great wallpapers. – grawity Mar 7 '12 at 22:50

Seems like Windows Dreamscene is the way to go:

Windows DreamScene is a utility that allows videos and other optimized animations to be used as desktop wallpapers. It is one of the Windows Ultimate Extras.
