BgInfo can help anyone who needs to keep track of a lot of systems -- physical or virtual. This simple utility replaces the desktop wallpaper with detailed information about the system, including such things as the operating system version and the IP address.

BgInfo may be especially useful for organizations that have a large number of virtual machines, because it can be difficult to tell at a glance which VM is currently being displayed on a console.
