I'll show you mine... "DeskSwap is a multi-user screensaver that swaps images of the user's desktop with others using the screensaver."

I was actually interested in the program, downloaded it, and watched it crash six times before quickly uninstalling it.

Not quite ready for public consumption, at least on a Win2000 system.

I was disappointed that the website didn't have screenshots.

Yeah, it's still an alpha and it's REALLY buggy. I got it to work a couple of times (normally after a boot, but then always crashed after that). It's kinda interesting once it's working though...kind of voyeuristic. And you really get a sense of how sloppy the majority of people are with their desktops.

I think that if it becomes (much, much) more stable, and gets a "minimize all open windows upon execution" command to hide sensitive documents -- it could be interesting.
