this is giving me a flashback.  :woot:  wasn't this part of the game included in win95 plus package?

Not that I am aware of. It was a screensaver (which I believe debuted in the Windows 95 Plus! package) called 3D Maze.

Personally,

I have never used a screensaver. Always thought they were dumber than heck!

 

Why would I want to leave my computer on and wasting energy, just to watch some stupid pipe drawing lines on it, or anything similar?

 

I put my computers to sleep immediately after done using them unless I don't plan on getting back on it, in which case I then turn it completely off. Always have, always will.

 

Sure,

They're all pretty cool, but still dumb!

Bear in mind that screensavers were designed to prevent screen burn-in when CRT monitors were commonplace; this was a time when not all operating systems had a "sleep" option. Nowadays they serve no purpose unless you're the proud owner of a CRT monitor . . .

I used to love the Microsoft Plus! screensavers and of course After Dark. There was also one called LCARS I used for a while, it looked like a Star Trek TNG display. To be honest though I don't believe I have used a screensaver in this century, LCDs do not need them and I just turn my monitor off when I'm away.

 

I almost forgot HP Mopyfish. I remember thinking that was the coolest thing in the world because you could feed it (and if you didn't it would die).
