I have an ASUS laptop, a G75V model. It has 16GB Ram, 2TB of HD space, and a 2GB 660M video card. It is also a 17" LCD at 1080 DPI resolution. It has an Intel i7 processor in it. So what I think I am asking is quite possible with the system I have in my possession.
In Windows there is a way to make your screensaver appear to be your desktop wallpaper, without actually being it.
Using this command in the command prompt.
scrnsvr.scr /p65802 your screensaver of choice will overlap your desktop, but not become it.
In OS X, it is very simple to make your screensaver override your desktop wallpaper by typing this in your terminal:
In Windows it seems to be impossible...
Without using a 3rd party application, is there actually a way to make your screensaver into the actual wallpaper?

What I don't want to do though is buy the app just to trick the OS to do what it seems to be able to do naturally with a purchase of an app, does this make any sense to anyone?
