Can I get the old [email protected] screen saver back?

There are ways to stop the "wobbling" effect, but otherwise no. The screen saver was ported over to OpenGL graphics so that it would support multiple platforms with the same code (Mac OS, Windows, Linux, etc)

The screen saver was made to move due to many monitors suffering from "screen burn", where the image would permanently burn the phosphors in the substrate causing a ghosted image effect even after the monitor is powered down, essentially rendering the monitor ruined (much to the dismay of many LCD owners out there and the occasional CRT owner).
