I'm so glad breakbeat techno isn't an illegal drug

A colleague of mine is running a screensaver that she purchased. Another colleague of mine likes it and wonders of there is a freeware alternative that is just as good. I don't use screensavers, so I don't know what is out there. Does anybody have a link to some free space-themed screensavers?

thanx

Best space themed screensaver ever, isn't really a screensaver at all.

The free open source Stellarium can be launched as a 'screensaver' with the small IdleStart utility I made.

Just set IdleStart to load at startup with a shortcut in the Startup folder. In that shortcut, set the parameters for length of idle time and path to Stellarium.

Now you have the space screensaver to beat all.  Wink
