Buy Now

1.2.0
02 June 2007

A humorous screensaver that pays tribute to the BeOS operating system.

Overview

Buy Now is a screensaver for Mac OS X. It is a loving replica of the original Buy Now, a screen_blanker for BeOS R5. If you used the BeOS and loved it, or once read something about it, or just want to be a retro-techno-hipster, this screen saver is for you! Buy Now is perfect for a lab full of lonely servers, or for an April Fool's Day contribution to a demonstration machine. Buy Now is a piece of computing history, lovingly preserved for the modern era. Don't delay, Buy Now!

Neat that the concept has some history, but all this screen saver does is blink the text 'BUY NOW' in white on a dark blue screen. Unless you're nostalgic for Be OS history, this screen saver will hold no interest for you.

will it give my windows funny-looking tabs instead of titlebars and disable my printer? :p

You're absolutely right. This saver is a one-trick pony (and certainly not for everyone). I have a couple of other BeOS savers that are a bit more interesting (read: eye candy): * Foam [http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/8584] -- colorful bubble art * Message [http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/8582] -- semi-abstract text art) * Lissart [http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/8585] -- mathematical string art.
