I love the Aquarium one (not free) and the ones from 3Planesoft (only two there are free though unfortunately).

Anyone have any favorites anywhere else? I love life-like ones like the ones mentioned above.

P.S. I used to LOVE the "Johnny Castway" screensaver, though I understand it cannot be run in XP now.

According to Johnny Castaway's Home Page, there are numerous methods you can use in order to get Johnny Running under Windows XP. As a matter of fact, it seems someone has modified the screen saver in order for it to work with Windows XP without any necessary tweaks.

I remember screensavers used to be big sellers -- the After Dark series, etc. I used to actually spend money at the stores buying these things. Where have all the screensavers gone.

I had an excellent Star Wars screensaver as well that included like 16 different ones.
