What do you mean with "BGinfo is no longer being updated"?
Last update was v4.26, October 2018, see here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/sysinternals/
I see no reason not not to use it.

Absolutely - BGInfo is still the simplest method to do this.

A good alternative is DesktopInfo. You can make it look much better than the default. The only negative is that it hides when you press Win+D
