Editors' Review

Download.com staff
Fans of The Matrix may get a kick out of downloading this animated desktop background. ZMatrix displays a stream of characters pouring down your monitor. The program sits in your system tray awaiting a right click to access its configurations. You can adjust the numbers, speed, and refresh rate of matrix streams. You can also change the font, background, and foreground color. The program gives the same character-streaming effects seen in the movie. Best of all, it lets you configure it to have the smallest amount of CPU time, halting any possible reduction in your computer's speed. ZMatrix can run as a desktop background and as a screensaver. Fans of the movie and screensaver junkies will love this free program.
