Mach Desktop brings your desktop to life with Quartz Compositions, Quicktime Movies, or Web pages.

You can, of course, choose your own Quartz Composition, Quicktime movie, or Web page to put on the desktop as well.
Mach Desktop also features an exciting new utility feature called Desklets: Desklets let you run Shell commands, Images, and Text files on your Desktop. Desklets are very powerful and let you view and display all kinds of information!

- Quartz compositions are built using a visual programming environment that take advantage of a massive set of technologies including but not limited to; Particle generators, 3D shapes, collision detection, realistic physics, 3D textures, per pixel lighting, video capturing and so much more
- Many screen savers are also quartz compositions
- Easily set Mach Desktop to play a portion of a movie by positioning two sliders
- You can slow down or speed up movies so it sounds like chipmunks
- If you have additional Quicktime plug ins installed, Mach Desktop will automatically take advantage of those extra movie formats
- Have a web site you can't stop visiting? Put it on the Desktop!
Desklets let you run Shell Commands, Images, and Text files on your Desktop. Shell Commands are Unix Commands that let you display all kinds of interesting information; using anything from simple commands to complex scripts. Image Desklets let you display images from either your local hard drive or images from around the web on your Desktop. And Text Desklets let you display text files (Plain text only, .txt) on your Desktop. Of the three kind of Desklets, Shell Desklets are the most powerful.
