    Ahhh, matrix code, good times. I'm currently rocking the iTunes album art one, if you have a fair amount of music it's pretty nice, plus you have the option of playing music through the screen saver if you want.

    I use it at work and it would piss me off if it kept going to sleep every time i come back to it. Prefer to use a screen saver :)

    Just found this one and its very cool. Ripples across the screen :)

    I would but I'm not sure work would approve of some of the album covers.

    I use the RSS feed one.

    Mine doesn't sit long enough to use one, I just put it to sleep if I'm away from my desk for a few moments. Closing it, protects it better anyway :)

    Remember those classic Windows 98 screen savers? With the mazes, etc, etc.? Haha.

    I don't think I saw this posted but I think XScreensaver is the best OS X/Linux collection of screen savers ever put together. There are almost 50 different savers included.

    There is something for everyone: Amiga users, Atari users, Apple II users (it is one of my favorites!), After Dark fans...you name it.

    You can grab it here.


    You can see the list here.

    EDIT:

    Great Star Trek one here.



    Enjoy!

    I use the clock one called Fliqlo.

    Yet I think this defeats the purpose of screen saver :p

    Yeah, this one would be good if it actually worked... All I get is a black screen with water ripples. Doesn't work with desktop.

    I use the iTunes artwork as well.

    Talking of which, does anyone know if it is possible to use this without iTunes creating a playlist every time?

    I just use the preinstalled ones when I have a need. Most of the time I just put it in sleep mode though.

    I contacted the developer and he said you have to disable the option that requires password to wake your Mac up after a while. Only then that screensaver will work properly.
