    Are these only for 64-bit? I kind of like that hyperspace one, but i have vista 32-bit.

    nope, these are old XP screen savers, should work on vista x32 just fine

    @ brk: All of them are severely customizable...if you're looking for somehting 3D-openGLish, I would really suggest giving these a test drive...if not just play around with the SkyRocket fireworks one...haha, I've wasted too much time playing with that one...if you're lucky, you can get this sweet sonicboom/cosmic explosion with a blazing shockwave, but it comes at random times...so you may have to wait a while for it =D

    Thanks

    I just remembered that I heard of a screensaver that downloads the really popular images from flicker on realtime, anyone knows what's called?
