Editors' Review

Despite an unconventional installation, this free Matrix-themed screensaver rises above many of its competitors. Rather than putting an EXE file on your desktop, The Matrix Screen Saver forces you to copy an SCR file into your Windows directory. Like many screensavers based on the hit films, this one shows the famous Matrix code moving across your screen vertically, although it boasts a nice feature set you may not find in similar programs. You can specify the appearance of the title and scanning sequences, make the screensaver show the current time, and even choose the telephone number and username to display. Best of all, this screensaver is free and won't burden your PC with any sort of spyware. All fans of the sci-fi movies likely will dig this program.
