Well, the Earth shows up looking like a bleached and featureless disk. The comet is a small bleached...shape...trailing bits of itself as it hits the disk. And on my MiniMac that's about it. When the developer reworks this, I'll give it another look, but for now I'm afraid I had to consign it to another kind of oblivion.

I realize and am grateful that program is provided for free, but come on! This thing looks prehistoric.

Pretty cool screensaver, my only comment is that the textures take a second or two to load, but other than that, it is pretty interesting. My only suggestion would to be to add preference for: spin speed, comet on/off, comet color, and maby size. But otherwise a very good free screensaver.
