This frivolous application places a walking penguin in your desktop, but has no extra features. Tux Walk offers an animated penguin that can be dragged anywhere on your screen. A right-click on Tux opens up a context menu that presents very limited options; for example, you can keep the walking penguin on top of other applications, or exit the program. Aside from walking, the only animation the penguin can do is sit in your taskbar and take a drink. Any level of user who wants to add some animation on his or her boring desktop may want to give this freeware a try.
