This nifty desktop theme turns your monitor into a relaxing, rain-rippled water surface. Water Desktop comes bundled with two background pictures of flowers that rotate on your screen at a user-selected interval. The program's visual effect is quite realistic, making it tough to tell that the onscreen picture is not actually being rained upon. If you do not care for the flowers, you can choose to display your own images. The thunderstorm sound effects add a nice touch, and we appreciate the ability to customize the appearance of the actual raindrops and apply transition effects. The application also can display a calendar that lets you append simple memos, but you can disable it should you find its presence irksome. We should note Water Desktop exacted a hefty toll on performance when tested with an older PC, so make sure your machine is up to snuff before downloading it. All things considered, this application strikes us as a good remedy against stress. Water Desktop will bring you closer to nature. This desktop can bring alive all the effects of nature. You can see water drops and waves running across the screen. See the effect the water drops create when they move across the screen. Also, you will see the effect of ripples being created by water. The ripples will run across the screen in circles and semicircles. You can get more than 30 kinds of wallpaper transitions. You also can make the surface ripple with your mouse by moving it over the desktop. Moreover, Water Desktop provides a beautiful desktop calendar and desktop quick note.
