Includes promtion for a Russian Knoppix website and uses the Matrix patterns to subtly display images from the movie.

I would much rather have only the Matrix patterns dropping down, without any images of the movies. Feels tacky to me.

I deleted it right after testing it for a minute.

(Others might feel different, so I won’t give it a bad star rating based on this purely subjective impression.)

This is an impressive screensaver. It doesn't suffer from the annoying periodic skips of most other savers. My only complaint is that I wish I could turn off the image morphing. I'm kind of a purist that way and would prefer to be able to turn it off. The option of applying your own grayscale image sources would be nice, but I've not idea how that works or how difficult it would be. I'd be very happy if I could just turn the feature off. :)

Just a quick update to the last comment. Alas, it does skip, but it's just not as noticeable as on other Matrix savers.

Okay, it isn't "The best matrix screen saver for OSX.".
However, it does look pretty stinkin awesome with all the pictures from the matrix morphing in and out. If you're a die-hard Matrix fan, you'll love this.
If you're one thats looking for screen savers, the customizable part of this SS is zero, zip, nada.
It appears that it's headed in the right direction.
It needs more features. Like for instance; Adding custom photos, movies, and glyphs that change.
The code doesn't look as authentic as the screen saver called Redpill, though it still has it's own edge on things. If you're looking for a screen saver that is as authentic as the one on the screen in the movie, then you'll want to download Redpill.
I'd say download this one too because it's also free, and it's great eyecandy. Eat it up..

This is one of the best matrix screensaver I have seen. I have pretty much all of them for OSX- I like the 'phasing' in and out of the matrix into photos. The only thing that would make the the best of the best (meaning there would be absolutely no equal in any fashion) would be the ability to choose a folder of b/w or grayscale photos to have morph into-out of the matrix. Great job- I was wondering when someone was gonna do this!!!

Dude, I don't care what the naysayers think, this screensaver rocks! Far and away better than the "red pill" screensaver!! As far as the plug for your company, that's a price I'm willing to pay for a free screensaver of this caliber! Keep up the great work!
