Use Screensaver as Desktop Wallpaper in Leopard

Do you want a more exciting Desktop? You can easily turn any Screensaver into a dazzling animated Wallpaper (I'm using the RSS Visualizer Screensaver, at left). There are several apps on the web that allow you do to this, but my personal favorite is BGScreenSaver 1.1. All you do is download the app from the web. Go to System Preferences in your Dock or Applications folder and choose the Screensaver you want. Then, run the app you downloaded from the web and boom you have an animated Desktop Wallpaper. There's also a terminal edit, for the more advanced users, if you wish to use it; simply type the following in Terminal: /System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/
Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background

Now the Screensaver is your background. To revert back to normal, just type Command-C.
