Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This nifty desktop theme turns your monitor into a relaxing, rain-rippled water surface. Water Desktop comes bundled with two background pictures of flowers that rotate on your screen at a user-selected interval. The program's visual effect is quite realistic, making it tough to tell that the onscreen picture is not actually being rained upon. If you do not care for the flowers, you can choose to display your own images. The thunderstorm sound effects add a nice touch, and we appreciate the ability to customize the appearance of the actual raindrops and apply transition effects. The application also can display a calendar that lets you append simple memos, but you can disable it should you find its presence irksome. We should note Water Desktop exacted a hefty toll on performance when tested with an older PC, so make sure your machine is up to snuff before downloading it. All things considered, this application strikes us as a good remedy against stress.
