Desktop Backgrounds are lovely. They let you put a nice, personal spin on your computer or laptop, and can bring back memories if you stick up a photo. But regretfully, once you stick up a wallpaper, you're stuck with it until you change it. Leopard does come with an option to change the background at certain time intervals, but you can't choose which wallpaper you want and when.

Desktopia is a great little programme that allows you to set different wallpapers for different times of the days. You can have a nice sunrise at dawn, and fix yourself up with a picture of the starlit sky at night.

Getting Desktopia started can be quite difficult. Mounting the disk image and copying the application to the "Applications" folder is simple enough, but once you start Desktopia, the window doesn't appear. Instead you have to click on the Desktopia icon in the menu bar, and then click on "Show Controller". But besides this, Desktopia is a very simple and enjoyable piece of software to use.
