Not only is lotsawater free and better but desktop puddle has a bad design flaw. When it takes a screen grab with my dock on the right hand side. The puddle contains a dock on both sides of the screen. Lotsawater does not do this.

What's up with the pincushion distortion? I've never seen that in a puddle or any other body of water.

All the comments about LotsaWater are all very well, and I agree that that's a great screensaver that's free. However, Desktop Puddle is better, and it's pretty cheap. I certainly don't regret paying the shareware fee for my copy; it's my favourite watery screensaver. Some people are saying that LotsaWater is more realistic than this. I disagree; I've just compared the two and find that (a) they're very similar and (b) for me, Desktop Puddle has the edge. Horses for courses, but I wouldn't call it a valid major criticism of either saver; they both look very good, and are very similar. I think that Desktop Puddle's 3D highlighting option for its waves (which LotsaWater doesn't have) helps and make it look a little more realistic. LotsaWater has a few more options for controlling the detail of the splashes and dimming the screen, but Desktop Puddle has a couple of worthwhile features that LotsaWater doesn't: (a) the curved screen depth option, which I personally really like; (b) better image placement choices (current screen, current wallpaper image or random image from specified folder). Overall I have to say that this is one of my favourite savers, and I like several other of the UselessCreations ones too. Yes, they're shareware, and generally speaking I don't like paying for screensavers, but I've found several of these to be good enough to be worth the modest fee.

Not to derogate this program, but I have to agree with the previous two posters that LotsaWater just looks more realistic -- and is more entertaining -- than this saver.

Absoloutly unnecessary. LotsaWater is better and cheap (free :) ) Only LotsaWater uses lot system source.

Very nice, but I'd like to point out that Lotsawater is free and IMHO looks nicer.
