10.6.1 Screen Saver System Preference tells me 3.6.2 can't be used on my computer and offers to move it to the trash.

@ Shotgunweddings:

Let's see. Static image burning into your screen? How long is your menu bar displayed on the top of your monitor? Or your desktop icons or dock? I don't see any evidence of my menu bar being burnt into the top of my screen even though I work on my computer for several consecutive hours each day. Besides, I'm sure most people have their display set to sleep after a certain period of inactivity anyway (you should) and so aren't likely to have a screensaver running for hours at a time. Like the original reply to your comment said, screensavers aren't really necessary these days and are mostly used only for aesthetic purposes. I'm shocked that you would post a one-star review on account of a non-issue.

IMO, this screensaver looks awesome, and it has a funky twisted face clock to boot. That's about all I could ask for.

A screensaver that is fixed in place is about as useful as 1 legged dog.

Wasn't even worth the download for free. The clock's hand's move but nothing else does, great for damaging our screens with burn-in.

No thanks

I read that CRTs get burn-in and LCDs don't. These days screensavers are just for fun or if you like the art.

DO NOT INSTALL OR USE THIS SCREEN SAVER. Upon installation, this screensaver installs a menu extra which phones home with marketing information about your system. If you try to quit this menu extra using tools such as Activity Monitor, the application will restart, because, on installation, this screen saver's installer also installs a LaunchDaemon whose job it is to make sure that their spyware can't be quit. While their uninstaller does work (if you take them at their word), it is also deceptively phrased, as (if my memory serves me correctly) the screensaver's uninstaller uninstalled *merely* the screensaver, leaving the spyware in place; you have to run the SPYWARE's uninstaller to properly remove yourself of the thing, or take it all out manually.

In short, there are plenty of other legitimate, non-spyware screen savers you can install should you so desire them. This company's practices are, in my own opinion, so deceptive as to make sure they never have a place on my computer; I suggest you make the same decision.
