    There is a couple of ways you can go around this.
    First one is you actually turn your desktop background into a live RSS feed list - provided your using windows XP and there is a great tutorial on how to this:

    Otherwise, you can use the yahoo widget engine and pick from millions of widgets that sit on your desktop. This method is very flexible as there are hundreds of widgets to choose from and see which one fits your needs best. Its Free as well.

    Lastly, this is something I have not tried.
    Its called Al's free RSS ticker. It sits on your desktop and passes rss feeds in a ticker style.

    My personal choice, though it wont display it directly on your desktop, is feedeamon.
    I've been using it for nearly a year now and think its great. Not only is it fast and small but it also syncs your feeds amongst all your pc's and online so that you can read your feeds even when your not at your own computer. It also does litle discreet popups to tell you when new news items have arrived.
    Free too!
