Magellan puts pictures of the world (or of any other sphere) on your desktop.

It will handle any number of different map projections, and will output to the X root window, or to a bitmap file. It can render multiple projections to a single output, and is fully configurable, with a modular design to allow plugins for alternative output methods and projections.
