Starry Night screensaver comes back to Mac

Do Berkeley Systems and After Dark ring any bells with you? One of the first things I installed on my first Mac, a Color Classic, was the then new, cutting edge and, yes, entertaining package of screensavers. A redo of one of the original After Dark modules has now been ported to OS X.

This is a revival of the original Starry Night screensaver from After Dark, released by Berkeley Systems in the 1990s. Starry Night fills your screen with a glimmer of stars and buildings. This work is not related or affiliated with Berkeley Systems, this is a clone written completely from scratch [by Even Green]Starry Night Screensaver on Google Codebase

That said, Starry Night doesn’t look quite as inviting as I remember it, but the past is always viewed through rose tinted lenses. Nevertheless, it’s a welcome addition to my growing collection of screensavers.

Starry Night is currently available for the fairer platform on MacUpdate and it’s free. A PC version can be had via the Google link above.
