    So as I understand it, Snow Leopard is not very compatible with screensavers from older os X builds. I've been looking around for a good list of Snow Leopard compatible screensavers, but all I can find are savers that when installed, tell me they cannot run in snow. So I was wondering, anyone got some good screensavers? The one I'm using now is:

    PS: If anyone has the Digg Labs screensavers working on snow, please tell me how. It keeps saying it installs, but then doesn't show up in the savers menu or folder. Thanks!

    In 10.4, I had the Defcon game screensaver (3d rotating wire globe), which is now broken on 10.6. Loved that screensaver. Anyway, I'm just using on eof the stock screensavers now.

    The screensaver framework is 64 bit in Snow Leopard; if you can grab the source code to the screensaver, and you have Xcode 3.2, you can recompile it with the 10.6 SDK.
