SubRosaSoft DesktopEarth

SubRosaSoft DesktopEarth downloads real time global cloud maps, then superimposes them on the map of your choice (political, geographic, elevation etc...) and sets it as your desktop picture. If left running it will update this map every 3 hours. A fascinating toy and useful tool. This application is now full shareware (no longer freeware).
