This application is a decorator’s dream, effortlessly adding animated “wallpaper” themes to a desktop computer. We were impressed with its functionality and seemingly invisible operation–despite actions that would appear to use a lot of memory and become a drag on performance. Moderndesktop works quietly in the background without taking up too many system resources, unless OpenGL is required to run the animation (and even so, it’s not crippling.) The program does support DirectX and OpenGL driver sets. While the program comes with six themes, you can set Flash files as animated wallpaper as well. It is easy to use, and most commands and functions are immediately accessible and understandable. Overall, Moderndesktop is a neat way to jazz up your screen.
