Why pay for a bad ripoff of a MS Windows Vista screensaver.
I'd rather compile the good old linux screensavers for mac.
It's a bad thing to steal and I really don't think that anybody is waiting to see these...


Good luck coming up with something original.

Steal from Microsoft? Don't make me laugh.

To pay or not is up to the individual, porting to another OS can be a challenge and I think this developer has done it well at a minimal price. Do you need this screensaver well only you know. I would suggest you check out Inferno if you want to see "something original" by this guy. After all dont take a screensaver so seriously, it's a bit of fun.

take care.

Having never had a Windows™ computer I am more then happy to pay for this pretty cool screensaver. I was bummed that I had to pay for this version since my serial number for version that I bought in 2008 did not work.

It's certainly better than I could do, but I'm sadly unimpressed. It's a bunch of five semi-transparent images that bounce around the screen. They don't even bounce in a realistic fashion. I remember making bouncy things like this on my Spectrum in the 80s...

This is my favourite screensaver from Vista (possibly favourite thing from Vista) so was glad to see a port to OSX. However, you only get about ten or seconds before the bubbles fill with dollar signs and an unregistered notice. $2.50 isn't much so I might think about it, but at the moment its only an early beta.
