There are a lot of programs out there that allows you to get a random 
Workbench backdrop each time your Amiga boots, but sadly most of them 
have one thing in common, they will only give you a random WB backdrop, 
the Window background will be ignored (it will be the same each time). 
This is not a solution that I am satisfied with, because in addition to 
a random WB background, I also want a matching window background. 

The answer to this problem is to use Preset files that are selected at 
random instead of only the picture files. Each Preset file are made by 
selecting both the picture that should be used for the Workbench and 
the one that should be used for the Windows. 

Helene is a program that will allow you to do this in a quick and easy 
way by using a GUI. You simply select the pictures to be used for 
Workbench and Windows backgrounds, then you save this information as a 
Preset file. After you have created a couple of Preset files, you can 
use a small script for selecting one at random. There are no need to 
edit text files or things like that, since everything will happen 
automatically.
