Default Changing Background?

I have a windows XP computer and I was wondering if i can get the background to change like on a Mac OS computer?

What software would i use? and is there a freeware program that changes the background?

So, there is no good one out there?
It doesnt have to be freeware, am willing to pay if it works well.

Maybe WindowBlinds http://www.stardock.com . There is a free trial and the full version costs about $20 USD, its very customizable and I use it for chaning styles of taskbar, wallpapers, login screens, start menus, etc. There is a Mac skin but it isn't all that good.

Try Webshots, that maybe what your after. It can change your background at set intervals.

You can set an animated GIF to your background. Give that a shot.

Yes Just make a GIF out of all the backgrounds you want. And set that as your wallpaper. Should work.
