One of the best screensavers from *IX land has arrived in Windows land.
Yes, the Mac had it first -- and then it was ported to XScreenSaver. But now, at long last, Flurry has been made into a Windows-compatible screen saver.

Maybe I'm late to the party on this, but it's such a nice screen saver that I cannot help but gush about it. After I installed it I was pleased to find that it is aware of dual displays in Windows. With just a simple check mark in the settings panel it began to render two different flurries, one on each of my panels. That's just damn cool.

I tried this a couple of years ago, be warned I found it to be *very* crashy.
As always though, YMMV.

Very nice. Up until now, my favorite saver has been rotor, but this one is much cooler. :)

Yay for needlessly wasted cycles!

Oh yeah, that's right. I have to upgrade xscreensaver!

Flurry for Windows would be cool to put on the work laptop, since those fuddy-duddies in IT blacklisted the Sysinternals BSOD screensaver as a "joke." But that's only because there's no Windows version of the apple2 xscreensaver hack.
