I made a version using
flickr/webshots desktop wallpaper switcher
*digital clock at 70% transparency, centered on the screen in really big font.
*A 5-day weather forecast in upper left
*A RSS ticker tape along the bottom.
It runs on a sub 300mhz laptop with a stripped down version of XP with 64MB of RAM! It only uses swap when it has to update the wallpaper (once an hour)
