Tried to install on Mac OS X 10.6.4. Saver installed itself OK, but when I tried to select it in System Preferences, it said "This screensaver cannot be used on this computer. Contact developer..."

Terrific... the best saver for a very long time. My preference is for the linear version, but the rotary is equally good. Unlike some of the other reviewers I've experienced no issues. I'm running 10.5.5 on a G4.

Love this screensaver, especially the new rotary mode.

However, the options seem to cause my preferences app to crash, and I mean a LOT. At least half of my attempts to alter any of the options results in it crashing.

This is super slick. Subtle but elegant, and really quite clever.

Works fine for me (MacBook Air, 10.5.5)

Looks like a great idea. Unfortunately, it crashes System Preferences every time I try to select Word Clock as my screen saver.
