    Hey ladies and ladies

    I like to have my background picture change every once in a while, so I was wondering, does this feature eat up your RAM? I just want to know if I'm reducing the performance of my computer by having this feature on.

    Peace

    I haven't noticed a drain on system resources, and I've got mine set to change every five minutes.

    I have it set to change every 5 seconds, and haven't noticed any loss in performance. I don't have any statistics to back that up though.

    i guess just further confirmation here... i am running an older ibook with deskop changing and don't notice any slowdown.

    the only desktop that has slowed anything down was when i was using the "flurry" screen saver for the desktop, but no surprise there.
