So are wallpapers; when was the last time you either had no application
windows covering the background, or even the majority of the desktop
background? You really only see the thing when you log in, and before
you start running your applications. Otherwise, the thing is mostly
(usually totally) covered.

Doesn't stop me from having a nice picture of Debra Messing as this
month's wallpaper, even if I don't see her unless I make a conscious
decision to minimize all open windows ... :-)
