    A blank screen.

    My screensaver is only on when I'm not at my computer, so what's the point in anything else?

    This might be interesting: http://www.electricsheep.org/. It's available in the repositories.

    Count me in the blank screen crowd too.
    Although I like the matrix, and the one that simulated a broken TV was good, but I don't like wasting all those CPU cycles, and raising the temperature of the whole box just for a freaking screensaver.
    Live long and prosper.
    And use lotsa Linux, BSD, and Emacs.
