It does work under SL. I installed onto my Mini and first time it didn't run. Re-installed and all was fine. Both versions were the same (1.42) so maybe a corrupt pref file or it just needed a clean install? worth persisting as it does run under SL - I have it on my unibody 13" and mini.

Thanks for adding multiple monitor support, as well as a few options. I'm enjoying seeing this saver "grow" and mature, and appreciate the developer's continual enhancements and improvements. Some color options next would be great!

I've not tried this yet on my 30" dual screen setup yet, so can't report on multiple monitor performance, but it's a beautiful saver!

Thank you and keep up the great work!

Low mac actived is more beauty to me,

I have to agree - can you add an option to set the number of particles and 'take the lid off the tank'?

This screensaver ought to be bundled with Leopard - It'd definitely help to sell a few more Macs!

EXCELLENT screensaver!

I think it would be PERFECT if it could be made to span multiple displays- I have 2 displays, and one remains blank while the other displays the saver-either have it span displays, or mirror, please.

It would also be nice to be able to change size of the dots, and cycle speed.

All in all-EXCELLENT!

I love this saver! I've been a fan since I installed LiquidMac to play with the sms on my macbook pro.

I have a couple of requests for future developement of this saver.

1. Give the user the option to change things in the saver. Color, speed, trails, gravity etc, should be user controlled, just like in LiquidMac.

2. An option to allow the user to manually control the flow, perhaps by moving the mouse around the screen, and the saver reacts accordingly. I know moving the mouse would deactivate the saver, but this could be an option where it doesn't deactivate until a click is registered.

3. I'd be more than happy to help beta test. I've beta tested tons of apps in the past, and would love to help this saver evolve. (Dev, email me if you're interested at www.macmd.com)

Keep up the great work!

I use a two-monitor system, with my desktop spanned, and this awesome (really, it's amazing) screen saver only seems to show on the main monitor. any ideas of how to make it pop up on both? (but not spanned... I'd prefer it to show the same thing on both monitors, like other screen savers I've used). thanks!

The screensaver is set to use on screen only on purpose, as it's quite heavy on CPU. If two or more instances are launched, performance drops and it doesn't run fluid anymore, which brakes the experience.

great, no problem. I'll leave it as-is and keep loving it.
