Flying Icons is a tribute to the fantastic Aqua Icons screensaver that shipped with the original Mac OS X. In Jaguar, it was "replaced" by the also-cool Flurry saver.

In fact, for optimum performance and utility, use of an iContainer is recommended (because of less disk activity). It also features some more advanced options, that allow you to modify how the icons behave. The maximum number of icons

Renders very fast (unlike Apple's), so it's like the great BeOS version. Cool.

I knew something great had disappeared since Jaguar. Now, I know what it was. The "flying icons" was a personal favorite. This triumph return is very cool indeed. Thanks!

Apart from the basic functionality present in Aqua Icons, Flying Icons has some additional features. It allows you to select a folder or an IconFactory iContainer as a source of icons. In fact, for optimum performance and utility, use of an iContainer is recommended (because of less disk activity). It also features some more advanced options, that allow you to modify how the icons behave. The maximum number of icons is 100 (in Aqua Icons it was set to 30). In addition, Flying Icons can run on two screens simultaneously. Aqua Icons only supported one screen. Of course, many of these options come with performance penalties, but should run within a few percent CPU on recent high end desktops and portables.
