A Beginner’s Introduction to Linux
Welcome to the wonderful world of Linux. You’ll embrace a plethora of free open source software, with more choices than you could possibly imagine. There are hundreds of actively-maintained Linux distributions, dozens of different desktop environments, and tens of thousands of open source applications covering the whole gamut: games, multimedia and graphics tools, internet apps, utilities, development environments, and much more.

(commercial) DicePlayer is a popular video player for the Android platform. The application differentiates itself from most rival free and commercial video players by offering hardware acceleration for certain video and audio containers. This enables dual core Android devices to be able to play high definition (720p but not 1080p) MKV and AVI files which would otherwise not be playable.


  • AlteredSaver
    (commercial) AlteredSaver is an OpenGL screen saver which also runs as a stand-alone application.
  • CMatrix
    CMatrix simulates the screensaver from "The Matrix" from the movie's website. It works with your terminal settings (up to 300 cols wide) and can scroll lines all at the same rate or asynchronously and at a user-defined speed. Read more
  • Electric Sheep
    Electric Sheep is a free, open source screen saver run by thousands of people all over the world. It can be installed on any ordinary PC or Mac. When these computers "sleep", the screen saver comes on and the computers communicate with each other by the internet to share the work of creating morphing abstract animations known as "sheep". The result is a collective "android dream", an homage to Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. Read more
  • eSwirl
    This is a simple program that attempts to generate the graphical outputs of the swirl screen-saver from the xscreensaver collection. It even tries to do better than the original `swirl'.
  • Fields
    Fields is a small force field simulator in the form of a screen saver. Particles react to each creating interesting visual patterns. Lots of parameters can be set to achieve different visual results in the simulation.
  • FLAM3
    FLAM3 is the rendering engine for the Electric Sheep distributed screensaver. It allows you to manipulate, animate, render, and evolve abstract imagery.
  • FlowerAttack
    FlowerAttack is a screensaver for KDE 3.x. It sort of behaves like a limited particle system. It is quite configurable. For example, you can change the number of emitters, images, colors, and so on. You can even create your own presets in order to quickly switch between experiments.
  • Flying Windows
    Flying Windows is an amusing "Flying Windows" screensaver. It starts out like the one shipped with MS-Windows, with little logos flying out towards you, but then comes the good part: your favorite Unix-variant character appears and begins blasting the logos out of the sky!
  • Gluqlo
    Gluqlo is a SDL remake of well-known awesome Fliqlo screensaver which is originally released for Windows and OSX platforms only.
  • jaron
    jaron is a modularized text mode screen saver. It displays different animations and string animations in a partially random order.
  • Matrixgl
    Matrixgl is a 3D screensaver for Linux (partially for KDE) based on "The Matrix Reloaded". It supports widescreen setups.
  • ncmatrix
    NCmatrix is a ncurses-based screensaver that produces the familiar display of vertical characters with added functionality to display network traffic. /proc/net/dev is polled to grab incoming and outgoing packet information, and the results are displayed as long or short colored streams of characters in the display, depending on the number of packets transferred since the previous poll.
  • Paper Pilots Screensaver
    The Paper Pilots screensaver is a 3D screensaver for OS X and Linux. It allows the user to customize up to 20 different screen configurations, choosing various combinations of airplanes, balloons, and scenery. A trial version is available for download.
  • QMLSaver
    QMLSaver is a modern screensaver written in Qt4/QML. It works on Gnome/KDE4.
  • Really Slick ScreenSavers GLX Port
    A port of some nifty OpenGL screensavers that were originally written for Windows to GLX. It is intended for use with an existing screensaver daemon like xscreensaver.
  • rsaver
    rsaver is a simple X screensaver. It uses only Xlib. After specified amount of time it will start to draw radioactive signs. If timeout is not specified, rsaver will get this value from X server.
  • termsaver
    termsaver is a simple text-based terminal screensaver.
  • The Idle Screen Project
    The Idle Screen Project is a collection of screen savers. The screen savers use OpenGL and Qt 4.
  • TuxSaver

  • xprintidle
    xprintidle is a tool that prints the user's idle time to stdout, using the X screen saver extension.
  • XRazzle
    XRazzle draws animated, color-cycling, abstract, random-line stereograms (the kind you have to cross your eyes to see). Have a look at the screenshots, and imagine the designs and colors constantly changing. No, you won't see a dinosaur or a boat or anything like that, they're completely abstract.
  • XScreenSaver
    The xscreensaver program waits until the keyboard and mouse have been idle for a period, and then runs a graphics demo chosen at random. It turns off as soon as there is any mouse or keyboard activity. It can also lock the screen (immediately, after a longer idle period, or on demand.) xscreensaver consists of two parts: xscreensaver itself (the ``driver'' or ``daemon''), which detects idleness and does locking; and the many graphics demos that are launched by xscreensaver.
  • XScreenSaver.App
    XScreenSaver.App is a Window Maker dockapp that will lock your screen (using XScreenSaver) and will give you the XScreenSaver configuration options when right-clicked.
  • Xtra Screen Hacks
    Xtra Screen Hacks is a collection of graphics display modes that are meant to be run with a daemon such as XScreenSaver.
