Windows 7 has an in-built feature to rotate its desktop backgrounds. This is really a feel good feature that prevents your desktop from getting dull, showing a single wallpaper all the time. But, this is not present in WIndows XP or Vista. So, do we have a chance to have the same feature on XP or Vista ? I say yes.
Wallshow is a free application that rotates your desktop background automatically. You can configure the tool to change the desktop wallpaper when a new application starts or periodically in an user-defined timed pattern.
The wallpaper swapping order, interval and positioning of the wallpapers on your desktop can be further tweaked using the Wallshow settings.
Techie Buzz Verdict :
This is a nice tool that makes your desktop more interesting as you do not have to see a single wallpaper all the time. There is nothing much to configure in this tool, only some basic steps which make the tool pretty easy to use. It supports almost all the image types like, BMP, GIF, JPEG, DIB and PNG. It also has the option to enable Active Desktop properties and its valid for all Windows operating systems.

The cool green characters dripping down the monitors were a very cool effect in the Matrix movies, and you’ve probably seen any number of screensavers that give you the same effect.
However, have you ever seen this on your active Windows desktop? Now you can have it there easily. Won’t that impress all your geek friends? Okay, maybe not.
While cruising through SourceForge today, I ran across this Windows enhancement named ZMatrix. It’s free and open source software (FOSS), so you won’t have to worry about 3rd party advertising in this one.
Download the 2mb file and install it. There are no surprises and the initial setup is a breeze.
Here’s what it looks like on my desktop now.
It’s fully active, almost like having a movie as a desktop wallpaper. The two or three main settings I played with allowed me to either make the background black (as above) or show the characters streaming above my normal wallpaper, or even have the characters take on the color of the wallpaper behind them (as shown below).
There are tons more tweaks (shown below) that I haven’t even played with.
Wait, that’s not all. I almost forgot to mention that it includes a screensaver. The screensaver has all the same options, which makes it possibly the best Matrix screensaver I’ve seen.
I love playing with this enhancement, and I’m guessing other old Matrix fans out there will also enjoy it. I couldn’t find anything wrong to criticize, but I’ll stop short of recommending it as a must haveapplication. It’s really only eye-candy.
All you nature lovers who love to decorate their desktops with beautiful wallpapers of nature, here is something that might be of interest to you.

Oddly, the software does not provide you with an option to select screen resolution for 2009 National Geographic wallpapers.
Bing the decision engine by Microsoft sports a new background image everyday. If you want to use the same image as your desktop wallpaper, you don’t need to visit the site and apply it to your background.
BingPaper is a freeware which will automatically download the latest Bing background and set it as your wallpaper.
Techie Buzz Verdict
BingPaper is a time saver for people who do this manually. Another good thing is that all the Bing background images are downloaded and stored locally. You can also use BingPaper along with a wallpaper rotator, to rotate the Bing background wallpapers at regular intervals.
