Set a screen saver as a background!

It would be awesome sometimes to be able to use a screen saver as an animated background. Another thing that would be cool with that is using the RSS Visualizer to transform your background into an RSS reader. OnyX lets you do that very efficiently. OnyX is a great free software for customization and maintenance. It can be downloaded here from MacUpdate.

Once it is installed and loaded, you simply have to go to the "Parameters" tab. Within the "General" tab, there is an option called "Animated Desktop Background". This will let you choose any screen saver and apply it as the background. It unfortunately doesn't seem to work with downloaded screen saver such as Fenêtres Volantes.

There is also a Terminal command that you can use to set your current screen saver as your background.

You can also go onto System Preferences and, under desktop and screensaver, check 'change picture'. Then it will opperate just like a screensaver, unless you have one that is like a movie or something.
