Matrix Animated Wallpaper

If you are willing to settle for a two-dimensional desktop
experience,
and you love The Matrix, this might be fun.

The image is an animated GIF, so it is big.  (Sorry
to the
dial-up users.)  The real thing works much better than the
animated GIF shows.  

The howto is href="http://geekhacks.com/2007/09/13/screensaver-as-a-desktop-wallpaper/">here.

If you want the three-dimensional version, you’ll have to use href="http://compiz.org/">compiz fusion.
 It is not for Windows, even Vista, and not for Mac OS X.
 You have to use Linux.  What are you waiting for?


Anyway, here is the video…

I did this myself, a while back, using Beryl.  It
is cool, but it makes it impossible to do any real work with your
machine, being rather distracting.  Also chews up CPU cycles.
 In fact, it gets to be kind of annoying.  But it is
still cool.

Oh, there is also an aquarium effect that you can do, if so inclined.
