Buy Now is a screensaver for Mac OS X. It is a loving replica of the original Buy Now, a screen_blanker for BeOS R5. If you used the BeOS and loved it, or once read something about it, or just want to be a retro-techno-hipster, this screen saver is for you! Buy Now is perfect for a lab full of lonely servers, or for an April Fool's Day contribution to a demonstration machine. Buy Now is a piece of computing history, lovingly preserved for the modern era. Don't delay, Buy Now!

will it give my windows funny-looking tabs instead of titlebars and disable my printer? :p

It will if you talk nice to it.

Neat that the concept has some history, but all this screen saver does is blink the text 'BUY NOW' in white on a dark blue screen. Unless you're nostalgic for Be OS history, this screen saver will hold no interest for you.

You're absolutely right. This saver is a one-trick pony (and certainly not for everyone).

I have a couple of other BeOS savers that are a bit more interesting (read: eye candy):

* Foam [http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/8584] -- colorful bubble art
* Message [http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/8582] -- semi-abstract text art)
* Lissart [http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/8585] -- mathematical string art.
