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

Note: Thread moved to more appropriate forum. This was posted to our "off topic" forum, The Lounge.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
