I have XP Pro, and my screensaver is from rolex.com...pick your watch, and the interval that you want your screensaver to pop up...the time on the watch is always sync'd to the atomic clock...

Apple all the way, the screen savers are better, and you might pick up a virus along the way downloading this. Windows is sad. BTW it's a widget, not a gadget, but Windows always follows Apple's ideas and steals them, no new ideas, just steals their ideas. Again sad, very sad.
