Retro Screen Savers

Tuesday, 19 January 2010

⚠️ This is an old post

It's possibly been exported and imported from at least three different blogging platforms over the years. That probably means, at best, there are broken images and links. If the post is technical in nature, any advice is probably out of date and irrelevant. Or it is really old, it was the wafflings of a teenager with too much time on his hands working out what blogging is… If it is the latter I would probably cringe if I re-read it. But it's here because it's part of my past, not my present.

You've been warned! Onwards…

Don’t get me wrong, the built in screen savers to OS X are nice, flurry is pretty and the mosaic screen saver coming from iPhoto or Aperture is just fantastic. However it’s quite nice to personalise your desktop experience beyond the basic.

One of the nice things about Linux operating systems is it’s range of screen savers, admittedly some of these are a touch on the dull side, but some them are just fantastic; flying toasters or bouncing cows being a good example!

Now thanks to Dan @ UneasySilence these screen savers have been compiled for OS X 10.6 “with 64 bit goodness.” Now you too can download the screen savers that play nicely from Personally I think that the screen saver Substrate is worth a look at.
