Ok here it is! LOL You know how you hear about people who down load a pet that walks around their desktop while they work or surf the net. Well here it is from “Iowa UFO Sightings” It is “UFO Desktop” Free download. Watch as you work away or surf the net as these alien spacecrafts roam silently around your desktop!! LOL then every so often a little alien will creep off the side of your screen to study the effects of prolonged “Facebook” use on humanity. It is free no tool bars or anything to install!! I hope everyone enjoys!

No Linux version, shame.

I cannot get Wine to run it in Linux, not even with a virtual desktop. :-( Ah well, perhaps I'll try it in my win7 VM
