The revenge of the big steaming pile o' Tiger

The coolest system resource EVER.

Tiger comes with a pretty cool RSS screensaver, which rates about 8 out of 10 on the cool scale right there. BUT - that is just the stepping off point for cool.

Insanely cool thing number one that you can do: Use the Quartz Composer to make your own RSS screensaver. Cool score: 10 out of 10

Insanely cool thing number two that you can do: Type this command in the terminal (it's all one line, for you small screen types):

/System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/ Resources/ ScreenSaverEngine -background

to make the RSS screensaver (or whatever screen saver is currently selected in the System Preferences) your freaking desktop! Cool score: 18.5 out of 10. Jaw-dropping awesome. And then some. Wow.
