Welp, I downloaded it the other day and installed it, just to see what was going on. It’s been a long time since I’ve used anything but the default ‘logon’ screensaver in Windows, but I figured MSN did a surprising job with the tabbed browsing in IE, and that gave me enough reason to try out their latest creation.
There hasn’t been all that much of a buzz surrounding this screensaver, even though it is about as revolutionary (if not more) than their toolbar and tabs were. I’ve only really found one mention of it in my travels of the blogosphere (even though I’m sure I could find more if I actually went looking). Surprise surprise, it was linked by Scoble, and you can find it here.
Personally, I have no pictures I want other people to see. Well, except for ones featuring half or wholly naked women, but those wouldn’t be appropriate for a screensaver at work. Since that’s really the main feature of the new screensaver, and I can get both my news and weather in my RSS feed reader whenever I want, there’s no real reason for me to use it. However, it’s nice to see people taking an interest in some long-forgotten features.
