    Haha, I'm pretty sure it isn't a gif image. Most likely some type of Quartz? I'm no programmer at all so I have no idea. If you manage to find a screensaver that looks like it i know you can use something like Wallsaver to make it your background. If all else fails just take a screenshot of it.

    convert it. and why do you want only the gif format? jpeg is more widely accepted i think.. but sorry, i've search atleast 10 different sites, all jpeg and/or png. no gifs.

    If you'd actually read the original post, he wants the animated version, which isn't possible with jpeg files.

    keep in mind thought that a moving desktop will take up a lot of cpu so i wouldnt use it unless you have a good comp with lots of RAM

    what wont? to do it download the screen saver, and drag the quartz file into HD>Library>Screen Savers. Open System preferences and set it as your screen saver. Download and open Wallsaver. By default it sets the current screen saver as your Desktop, which should be the time machine quartz file. After this you can go into system preferences and change your screen saver back to what it originally was but the time machine quartz file should remain as your desktop.
