Feature changed by: Peter Gumbrell (gumb)
Feature #308440, revision 3
Title: Official Screensaver

openFATE: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Quentin Denis (queden)

Description:
What about an official screensaver for openSUSE? Like Windows always
has had, something humble and soft, but stylish! Currently there is no
useful screensaver, either they're to crappy or to agressive.
Regards,
Quentin

This is a great idea! Very simple way how to promote openSUSE and
create a brand recognition ...
I think there is no need to create a new screensaver, just preselect
Flying openSUSE logo or something similar.

+ How about a Pacman-like maze where Geeko goes around gobbling wafers.
+ Tux could supplant the bonus bouncing strawberries that enter the
+ frame, and the 'ghosts' could be represented by Windows logos (or to
+ avoid copyright infringement, some mugshots of Ballmer). Only problem
+ with that scenario is that, ultimately, MS always wins! (You could
+ reverse the concept and have the ghosts represented by distro logos,
+ with Ballmer's greedy face going around gobbling the wafers)...
+ Failing all that, I back the original suggestion. Something subtle, in
+ 2D for those struggling with crappy graphics drivers, and featuring
+ Geeko in some way.
+ PS Anybody remember the '90s Windows screensaver Johnny Castaway, and
+ his uncanny resemblance to Richard Stallman? We could have RMS cast
+ away all alone on a desert island following some inevitable new
+ controversial remarks, watching him going about his daily life hacking,
+ fishing for non-proprietary software, slowly using the wood from the
+ sole tree to build a GPL raft that will float him away to freedom...
+ Just a thought.
