Aw, you must be a babe in the woods. I am a descendant of DOS...been up through the pre-pubescent yrs of the earliest available Windows versions, for me, at 3.1, through all other versions, to my dottage in XP-SP2. I do not intend to retire to VISTA...damned if I'll be "hooooooked up" to some machine, with tubes and cables hanging out of me
That being said, NO, not wallpaper
. In the early versions, you used to have a function under "Properties" on the desktop which allowed you to view your desktop as a "Webpage." It was most entertaining, and you could put all sorts of junk on it, absolutely anything except for active media files, as they had not been "invented" yet, as far as I know. And I don't recall if ani's could be mounted, although I don't think so. All that sort of animated stuff is very recent to computers.
I do know that I had pics of the fam...graphics, etc., and they were dynamic, in-so-far as the user could alter the size of the pic from anchor points on the edges...and you could locate them anywhere you wanted by just grabbing them and moving them around. It became a truly personal space!
I miss it...
