You could tweak it to make it a little more 'Umbrella Corporation' like, nothing like a little homage to Resident Evil

Ours is not very interesting either:
We use BGInfo to put user specific information on the wallpaper [Username, logon time, station logged on etc]

Nice stuff guys Really like blade danny's wallpapers, they look slick! I also like the idea of having different wallpapers for different departments it just would be hard to do it using group policies because we have all the students under "Students" but it's a cool idea.
Keep the desktops coming guys!!
I also like the information, notice board type thing, what do you guys think the best way to do this would be? or a really really lite app?
Thanks to Cemito from:

Departments is easy, just assign the GPO at a computer level and have it run as a logon script, so long as there isn't a competing logon script from a user GPO it will still run and apply. Tie your departmental-background-GPOs to OU if you have everything organised in a tree, or do it by security group filtering if you AD is flat with computers assigned to security groups.

It took me a while to realise what you were talking about, though, my eyes had automatically ignored that section on @DaveP's desktop. Comic Sans MS, for shame!

I created a intranet based around a noticeboard - all was php/mysql driven with only staff being able to submit. was fairly easy to code (essentially a table in an array outputting the results for each line). @Edu-IT used it I think although not sure if he still does.
Everybody had the intranet launched on login so they could always view the Noticeboard.

I am aware of the lively campaign running against Comic Sans:

You can find similar strong opinion in its favour.
I chose to use Comic Sans because I wanted a font that was [hopefully] both readable and acceptable to a wide range of age groups. My feelings toward most fonts is neutral [however I do like Times New Roman (call me old fashioned?)]
But in the end is it really that important? It is not Wingdings and so what is displayed can be read and understood.

I attach altogether too much importance to fonts - too much web design theory back in the day - and have seen Comic Sans abused in too many inappropriate situations to ever be comfortable with it. But then I probably abuse Helvetica and its derivatives as much as some people abuse Comic Sans. Glass houses, stones, etc.
