Just a thought, i think it would be neat if Seti made the old screen saver a graphical option and just implemented it into bionic, don't see the harm since i see people posting to see if the old version works, who would want the old looking screen saver for bionic as a option ?

count me in, +1

at least its something decent to look at while your not personally using your CPU, so technically its not wasting if its still crunching #'s during the Screen Saver

Using the screen saver slows down seti you pump out more units quicker with none.

Technically the classic screensaver was not a screensaver because it had static items, the border being one of them, that could burn into the screen. Hence the present design where all parts move.

And no I don't use them, no matter how interesting, funny etc. they all become boring in the end and use computer resources and if monitor is left on power.

I do not usually watch the graphics, but when I do, I like the clear and sharp appearance of the old 2D graphics. The texts in the 3D graphics are too soft/blurry...
