Well officially, Active Desktop has been replaced with Gadgets since Vista. To activate them, right click on the desktop and choose Gadgets. Just drag them out of the Window to your screen. You can download more from here: Windows Live Gallery

I knew what you meant from the first post. Closest I can think of is Dreamscapes. There's a tutorial for it under the Appearance category in the Tutorial section.
