10.5: Install a number of bundled screen savers
Authored by: shmuel on Nov 16, '07 03:40:58PM

Calling these "bundled screensavers" is misleading - most of these are not in fact screensavers at all but rather parts to be used in Quartz Composer projects. The majority are simple images effects which require an the selection of an image (in options) and do not move, fade, or do anything else that would "save" a screen. Some are actually the effects used in Photo Booth, iChat A/V, and Address Book.

To give the hint a little credit it does suggest a few that work better as screen savers but it should be noted that just because Mac OS X's screen saver engine will "play" any quartz composer document doesn't mean that every quartz composer document is a screen saver.

Personally these are the ones that seemed worth copying to me: Stix, Travelator, and Wall but of course YMMV.
