The original M0ire defined an entire Mac generation. This brings me back to my sometime youth, when I chose Mac over PC as my personal platform, before I'd purchased my first share of Apple stock. Bravo!

Add to that the fact the developer took the trouble to get the blessing of the original authour even though his was a black-box re-implementation.

Minus a fraction of a decimal point for the normalised name: M0ire, not Moire.

Compared to such modern things as G-Force there really is no comparison. That's not the point. For preserving of one of the primaeval beauties of the Macintosh platform, 9.99 out of 10.

Nice to see this old screen saver back on the Mac, and it's a fairly faithful copy of the original. I think developer is seriously misguided in choosing faithfulness to the original over bringing it up to date though. Options panel layout and pixelated graphics are a joke.

Crappy looking ugly screensaver. Looks like back in the nineties. Yuck! Avoid this.

(And yeah, this is actually a clone of a 1990s screensaver)

Why?

Why download? Why create this? Why am I wasting anymore time on this cheesy screensaver?

Horrible crap and the options button freezes the preview and nothing else.
