I'm not a Linux user but, like everyone, I've been impressed by movies demonstrating Compiz, and most importantly one of its effect plugins, Fire (or Burn, or whatever it's called), which allows drawing in fire ink over your desktop.

So I thought, why not in Windows? A new type of window was introduced in Windows XP for stuff like this. It won't be perfect, maybe a little slow on some systems, but should work.

And here is the result...

is freeware, is hot

is useless, thus absolutely necessary. Ok, maybe you can use it to leave notes on your desktop?

may be developed further, if interest is manifested

requires Windows XP, Vista or above (will NOT work under Windows 9x)
