I love all of the classic Windows screensavers (Flying Through Space, Flying Windows, 3D Pipes, etc) but 3D Maze is one of my favorites. It was highly customizable (one could change the patterns of the walls, floor, and ceiling, if preferred; or include a map on the screen) and quite pleasant to watch with its interesting visuals (the maze floor would occasionally become the ceiling and vice-versa, a rat would roam the maze, etc.)

One of my favorite screensavers in more modern versions of Windows is the Aurora screensaver in Windows Vista.

Another screensaver that comes to mind is the Windows Energy screensaver in Windows Vista. If your hardware was powerful enough to run it, it would show you stunning, color-changing auroras.

same idea. no need to have it show random ###### for 5 mins before shutting off the screen in this age of instant on instant off.

My TV has the Dream Scenes app - so it has some cool screensavers with music - but like everyone else - I dont use a screensaver for my computer... I dont think I have since Windows 2000 !

Two of my favorite screen savers are now lost in history.

 

One was an After Dark Looney Tunes Screen Saver.

 

 

The second was a 3D landscape city builder. I thought it was called Landscapes.

 

Can't find even a hint of it anymore. :(

 

Oh yeah, the classics too.
