I recently had an idea to develop a Windows Wallpaper application along with which to display an inspiration quote, which I would describe as here:
A windows wallpaper application which randomly picks Wallpapers from a particular folder and sets it to Desktop Background with an inspirational quote.
Grabbing an Inspirational quote, can be done from a particular text file. One can add the quotes that one wishes in the same text file. Or what more can be done is a number of text files can be placed in a folder, and the text from it is displayed along with the wallpaper. This is a direct Windows Application as it goes directly into System files and folders.
1. How can I get a kicks tart and what's the best programming environment for this?
2. Also, what knowledge will I require for the same?
Later, I wish to extend this such that the Wallpaper as well as the Inspiration Quote to sync with an Internet Server.
