Martin ‘DoctorMo’ Owens posted this very neat demonstration of a generative wallpaper, as proposed/wanted/sought out for Ubuntu 11.04 +.

In the video he shows how he set a .SVG image as his desktop background coupled with a  small python script running in the background to manipulate and continually change aspects of the wallpaper.

The result is something visually pleasing to look at and, with moves being made to introduce functionality along these lines to Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal we  be drooling over something very similar on default desktops 6 months from now…
