    Please don't post long links using the [ url ] tags. Use [ url=http://urlhere] instead as horizontal scroll is the most annoying thing in the world.

    Problem is, most of the cool looking displays use gDesklets, and gDesklets won't run in root...

    You run root all the time? Don't. You are no more secure, and possible even less, than Windows if you do. It is your own fault if someone breaks in and screws something up, or if some malicious software screws something up.
