The X in XScreenSaver

Wow. jwz is reimplementing Xlib atop Quartz so that all of the XScreenSaver modules can be recompiled cleanly for Mac OS X.

If you don't grok the über-hackishness of this (or the fact that most UNIX switchers would gnaw off their right leg to have Dashboard replaced by XScreenSaver), you aren't worthy of calling yourself a UNIX geek.

Next thing we know, he'll be making Intertwingle a reality on Mac OS X...
