ZMatrix

GPL (free) – Happy Dude – Windows

ZMatrix is an animated desktop background that will display streaming characters in a style similar to the one used in the movie ‘The Matrix’.
Besides attempting to reproduce this look, the program also allows you to choose your own color, font and background blending methods to suit your taste.

As is implied by the mentioning of ‘background blending methods’, the program will not necessarily hide your current background image, rather, it can be told to blend with it in a few different ways (see the Configuration Dialog). Furthermore, ZMatrix can also function as a screensaver.

ZMatrix is capable of functioning as a screen saver as well as it’s normal, background operation mode.

Please ensure that ‘Active Desktop’ is turned off to get the proper behavior out of this program.

Here are some key features of “ZMatrix”:
· Completely text based rather than using images.
· Has low priority so it will not slow down other operations.
· Does not impede normal desktop operations.

Note: this file was only classified as malware by scanners known to generate more false positives than the average scanner.
