these have been mentioned previously, but I want to add my 2cents-
I loved the Seti@Home classic interface/screen saver- attractive to look at (& hypnotic to watch) and easy to configure.
The BOINC interface is none of these. The screensaver is ugly and the combination of setting preferences locally AND on the Web is confusing and annoying.

Honestly, the Screensaver graphics need to be upgraded. Beyond the warm feeling of helping to look for eti, I also want a little eye candy.

I thenk we'd all like to combine the features of the BOINC distributed computing system with the local control and appearance of the classic interface?

In your user area there is a link that you chouse your graphics, you can do major changes, how fast it rotates, how far it rotates, how many stars, what colour graph you want ect. have a look its fun :) as for changeing BOINCs looks you cant :( but hopefully they will add a skin script then it will be good.
Just let them fix it first then tell BOINC :)
