    Mac OS X Snow Leopard Version 10.6.8, 4 GB. I got it at the Apple Store in my Local Mall (Sears)
    Can I have a program run in the background?
    I know you make a screensaver run in the background:
    YouTube - ‪How to make your wallpaper a screensaver(mac only)‬‏
    So I was wondering if you could make a program run too, or make you background interact-able.

    What program? I actually have a program running as the wallpaper - it's called EarthDesk
    Apple - Downloads - Icons, Screensavers, etc. - EarthDesk
    There is also geektool
    Tynsoe projects
    Which allows you to run programs and output the programs to the desktop
