Default Screensaver

If you have one, what do your screensavers look like? I don't believe this is a topic that has been covered before so if you have a screenshot, that would be great. I'll start off with the following:

Flurry32. I guess it's a Linux/Mac screensaver that got ported to Windows. I picked it up back when I was running Ubuntu though.

I use Windows XP's Starfield on my PC.

I had one with the Porsche 911 996 coupe, where it rotated 360 degrees while changing into the 996 Targa, then 4S, then Turbo, then GT2, and back to the 996 coupe, then repeating the cycle again.

Screen savers no longer serve their original purpose.



They've became a way to brag about your hardware.

I use ElectricSheep. I can't really post a pic or a video because it changes every time it runs. It gets updated from the server with a new sheep.

Unfortunately for me I don't have a screensaver.
But *if* I am to have one then...
For my WS2003 machines it would be the default WS2003 screensaver - just to show off the fact I am better than you egotistical I-am-staying-XP *******s.
For my Vista machines it would be ribbons cause it just looks so damn nice.

I use it too.

Screensavers no longer serve a purpose really though. I have computers old enough that required screensavers to prevent burn-in on the CRT. I have a Mac SE with the menubar BURNT into the top of the screen. Even when it's off you can faintly see the bar.
