Sure, you are not actually going to get Dreamscene for your PC but it doesn’t matter if you’re going to get the same effect right? This is exactly what VLC Player can do for you. You might or might not have heard of this program but it is a free video player that eliminates the need to download many different codecs as it already recognizes a large number of them. VLC has a built-in feature that allows you to play videos as your wallpaper.

Dreamscene is only available for Windows Vista Ultimate users, but with this method, it can be made available for anyone with a copy of Windows or MacOS X Tiger. More »

Although I am trying to not make any major changes to my PC as I will be upgrading to Vista soon, I have just added a few new Wallpapers from http://wallpaper.dontloveme.com/, who have over 3000 high quality images available for free download. The wallpapers are all nicely categorized, with over 20 categories.

Well, worth checking out if you are looking for a quick way to spruce up your PC.

You can make Windows XP look like a Mac in just a few steps. This includes having a fully functioning dock that allows you to launch programs and minimize active programs to the dock. This dock has bouncing icons like Mac OS X and also has similar animations when programs are minimized and maximized. Click the screenshot above to see an enlarged version. I will walk you through the process of making Windows XP look like Mac OS X and gain some of the functionality.
The first step is to install the dock at the bottom. This application is called Rocket Dock and I am using the Beta release. You can download Beta 3 of Rocket Dock from File Forum.
