In other news, tis the season. If you've stopped by the Apple Store perhaps you noticed the 17" iMac in the snow globe with a very cool falling snow motif on screen. Well 411 is that the motif is a full screen QuickTime movie, not a screen saver. So what if you want that winter mood on your Mac at home school or work? Our friends on the internet have solved our needs. Want a screen saver? Check out SnowSaver written with OpenGL. Sweet. Want to run it as your desktop picture? Well first you better have a Mac that can run Quartz Extreme in Mac OS X 10.2 (aka Jaguar). Then download BackLite and let-her-rip. Cool, eh? Want more? Perhaps snow that falls on your desktop, even over top your applications? Then check out Snö. You can even set the wind speed. Cool.
Lastly, for users of any platform that can run TrueType, you have to pick up Anonymous, the finest, free-est monotype font I've seen. So much better than Monaco or Andale Mono. Know of a better one? Comment…
