spoonyfork writes "Announced along side the 5.03 release of XScreenSaver, Jamie Zawinski has finally given up on Linux completely at home and at work after a hardware failure on his headless mail server which was replaced with a Mac Mini. "So, if this release [of XScreenSaver] doesn't work on Linux... uh, that's why." He has already ditched a free/open platform before, but he seems a lot more calm this time. Previously."
