What is Powder for Mac

Powder displays beautiful, interactive winter scenes on your desktop. Using an advanced particle engine and accelerated, OpenGL graphics, Powder makes you desktop come alive. Moving your mouse through the snowscape causes the snow to twist turn as if a breeze were blowing through it.

What's new in Powder

Version 1.0.2 adds the following:
  • Works properly on Mac OS X 10.2 (Jaguar)
  • Fixed a memory leak in the frame rate display
  • Two new scenes (Zen and Oasis)

I agree. Money grubber. They call this "shareware". This is a DEMO. And not worth money. Otherwise, nice little program for FREEWARE.

There is currently a bug preventing the newest version of Powder from running on versions below 10.3. We are working hard on a new version that will solve this problem, but until then we have made available an older version which should work on earlier versions of OS X. It can be downloaded here: http://www.sphera-soft.com/powder100.dmg.gz

I tried it on two macs. One was a quicksilver G4 and the other Flat panel 17" imac. It didn't work on either machine.

I just downloaded version 1.0.1, and it's working fine. Looks like whatever was causing problems for earlier posters may now be fixed. I did notice that it moves out of the way if you use Expose. Not what I wanted, since I wanted to move the windows to see the snow. :-) It's only been five minutes, but so far I like it.

Support the Holiday spirit of giving instead. Try Xmas Lights. Its less resource intensive and its free, and will still put you in the mood - perhaps more so, since it is offered in the true spirit of the season. Better yet - use Xmas Lights and donate the $7 you would have spent on this product with your local Salvation Army bell ringer. BTW - nothing stopping you from donating a few bucks more - why not a $10 bill?

Grrreat idea... now if it could only be optimized to not peg the processor (though in fairness, it has a lot going on).

Lots of features and a cool idea, too bad its the most gratuitous waste of processor power ever and that it runs like crap on my 1 Ghz G4 with a 64 MB Radeon 8500. And by the way its not freeware but shareware for $6.95
