Water streams create an environment of peace and tranquility around them; for this reason they are among the most sought-after landscapes. The Watercourse Screensaver is intended to bring this peaceful atmosphere to your desktop. It features an animated scene with a water stream, complete with sound effects reminiscent of a peaceful forest.
You can control many of the screensaver's features, like the image size and rendering quality. Also, you can choose whether or not to activate the clock and the sound effects when the screensaver is on. However, since there is only one background image, some of the controls are useless: the duration and the order of the images, for instance. On the other hand, you can use your music collection to create a playlist of songs that will play when the screensaver is active. Another interesting feature is the possibility of setting the screensaver's background as the desktop wallpaper.
One big disadvantage of this program is that its installation wizard forces you to install the ScreensaverList toolbar in your Web browser(s), which can be rather annoying. Also, the water animation looks kind of unnatural. If you don't mind these inconveniences, then you may like this screensaver.
