Does anyone know how to display the server information (name, ip, cpu, etc) on the desktop background? I've seen it used, but i have no idea how to show it.

It is a free tool from the suite called BGInfo.

Read this URL and it will show you how to configure/automate what it displays.

BgInfo from Microsoft Sysinternals is probably the one you've seen.
