I'm not sure quite how to describe this
idea, my knowledge of computers being
soley for operational purposes, but
basically, it's a screensaver for a
background. pick any number of animated
scenes that run on a loop. then, in places
where the screen is static (not animated,
there would be fish
swimming by and stuff, but rocks and
such would not much), put the folders,
and the icons could be automatically
changed to blend in with the background
seamlessly, or just made transparent. the
worrds beneath would remain.
||So... you'd basically have to remember where you left all your icons because you wouldn't be able to see them?
||Why not get rid of the icons completely and just have a list of application names? Oh no, wait, that's the Start menu.
||Purely aesthetic is right; all traces of function removed!
||If I remember correctly, in Windows you can select a GIF animation as your backdrop, and the animation will loop continuously right on the desktop.
||You could create a GIF animation of your icons moving around on your desktop, and set that as your wallpaper.
