illogic you are very rude, comments like that doesn't belong in the open source society. Ever heard about constructive critisism?

I've added a OpenGL frontend.

I home there are some OpenGL guru's that can take a look at it, to give me some suggestions to make it even cooler

It may not look amazing, but it's quite fun/interesting just watching the little balls bounce around. It'd be cool if someone could create a nice OpenGL rendered version with little bees buzzing around :)

One suggestion: let the particles move off one edge and onto the opposite edge of the screen (so if it goes off the right, it comes on the left). Otherwise the queen seems to get stuck in a corner quite often!

Maybe you don't like the colours. Well, the next version will have a dialog for that.

Until then, please test the screensaver before you comment. It's really fascinating to watch.

Ok, it doesn't use OpenGL like the 'real' screensavers, but it's still nice. The next version has a clear separation of GUI and physics, so it's not very difficult to create a 3D version of this screensaver. Unfortunately, I don't have any hardware fast enough to develop such a screensaver (no hardware 3D acceleration).
