    A non portable way to put an image inside a windows console
    (Dos) Drawing a bitmap?

    Useful? Perhaps not. Definitely not useful as a background.

    Linux supports console backgrounds. (Also non portable obviously)

    Consoles are notoriously not friendly to images... it's a console thing.

    However, you can still perform interesting things if you learn to use colors and what you call "cool things":

    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
