Animated wallpaper was an idea that originated years ago. With the shell enhancements made available at the time, it was thought that virtually anything could be displayed on your desktop. The founder of AniPaper, a computer scientist, made this dream a reality in early 2002 with the introduction of the Winter Wonderland animated wallpaper. The success of this wallpaper was absolutely amazing and with the help of some very talented artists, it eventually became known as AniPaper.
