  1. Yup. I’ve been using a similar one called Snowsaver.saver for years, and it works on 10.1 up (running fine on Tiger right now). The guy built it in OpenGL himself after seeing something like it on a computer at an Apple Store and being told that it was just a QuickTime movie, not an actual screensaver. VersionTracker’s got it here.

  2. Maybe I’m the only one but…I don’t seem to have a “Screensavers” folder in my library on my system. I am running 10.4.8.
    I even tried creating my own “Screensavers” folder in the library folder and moved the “Snowfall.qtz” over and then went to System Preferences and it was greyed out…
    Any suggestions?
