This is one of the betterdownloads available on the net! It allows one to select different folders of photos or images to be set as a desktop image changing at selected time intervals.

hum... 366 folders for each day, but only 6 wallpapers available!?, that just doesn't cut it!

Other than that... there is nothing spectacular to write home about, but it is FREE from MS~ can't ask for too much...

Still, check it out~ :)

Another good seasonal theme pack from MS. I personally like this one better than the one released last year.

I seriously doubt if other ppl think twice installing this kindda packs before thinking..~ "It takes whole chunk of resource?", "It does nothing?" If you install it you aren't gonna care, right? For certain ppl who think this pack is as useless as other software MS make, then don't use Windows and don't write reviews for this (cuz you can't install on Linux or MacOS).

And yes, it DOES take quite some resource, with 1GB of RAM I aint gonna care!~

Bloated Resource Hog Gives Little or No Benefit!

Like most MS products, this one takes up a whole, whole lot of space to do what it's going to do -- which isn't a whole, whole lot.

The install experience is a vast improvement over last year's Packs. They have dumped the bloated Install Shield for Wise and it shows. I also am impressed with the cross-promotion of the packs. It's good to see that the headless chicken syndrome is going away.

Ha! I love it!!! And who are these dweebs who worry about how big a program is? Like anyone cares when systems come with 256 meg of memory and 40 gig drives. Microsoft haters, you just gotta feel sorry for them and the lame reasons they give others for their foolish positions.

why does that scrnshot remind me of a Norelco shaver?
I do not need this hunk of bloatwared M$ proprietary format sucking gizzard to play media files.
Gimme Media Player Classic & leave my system resources alone!

I am not a fan of bloat - nor do I like counter-productive user interfaces. My recommendation is Media Player Classic. It's under a megabyte, can be used with mouse and keyboard - intuitively - (ie. in a standard manner to 99% of other windows applications) and comes bundled with just about every other codec you can imagine. If you want a pretty interface - then stick with Microsoft Media Player.
