    Thank you for this incredible article. I own an Asus netbook with W7S, and I absolutely hated the “default” screensaver that came with it. Thanks to you, I know have the “Ribbons” screensaver running. It’s my favorite and have it running on all my other PC’s. I now like my Asus just a little bit more.

    Once again, thanks!!
