The Electric Sheep screensaver features morphing abstract animations called "sheep" that are formed collaboratively by thousands of users around the world, and their computers. Users can vote for the animations, created by all participating computers, using the up and down arrow keys on the keyboard, and thereby influence the evolution of the flock. Also, users can optionally design their own sheep and submit them to the gene pool.

This works incredibly well:)
Setup was a little confusing and I had to make it the default SS before it would appear at all, but it works well for me and it supports dual-monitors with either cloned images or independent images. Speed is adjustable via FPS setting.
It did not work after down loading and I am not willing to wait hours for it to work. I think its a joke.
Fine so far
