XScreenSaver

XScreenSaver is a collection of screensavers that ships with most distributions of Linux and other Unix-based operating systems, but it has also been ported to run on Windows and Mac OS X computers. The collection includes more than 200 different screensavers created by Jamie Zawinski, who has also been maintaining the collection since 1992, and many other authors. On macOS, all screensavers can be installed at once, but this may slow down the Screen Saver panel. On Windows, you can only install one screensaver at a time.

Actually never mind, ignore my previous comment. The license does indeed allow any one to distribute it, not sure why Jamie has said this.

Don't get me wrong, XScreenSaver is nice, but I think Jamie said on his website that he doesn't like it when people port his software to Windows... \_(._.)_/
