Imagine a desktop where the backgrounds were based on the time of day and time of year. Imagine being able to listen to natural sounds such as birds singing, crickets chirping, or rain falling. Imagine having a mini-display on the desktop that showed animated day and night cycles, clouds, lightning, and more! That is what the Natural Desktop is. It doesn't interfere with your work or your other desktop enhancements.
The sounds, which can be turned off if you wish, are a welcome treat for those who work inside all day. Morning doves singing in the morning to cicadas in the afternoon and crickets and owls at night all give a subtle and realistic simulation of what the outside might be like (or what you might wish it were like if you're wishing it was a pleasant spring afternoon instead of a dreary late Fall afternoon).
