things like this should be in a more suitable forum, i.e. General.

This doesn't belong in a Linux - General forum, so its been moved to the General forum.

Also, what is this link, looks like I have to buy something, are you advertising this ?

why have you put a link to a screensaver for windows while every one here uses linux? I happend to work in windows at the moment so I could try it out. And yes, like the name sujests, this screensaver is kind of demotivating. Not really what you need during exam time!

To the defense, (first time for everything)

If you go to thinkgeek.com, they have a series of posters called the Demotivators. Basically it makes fun of those successories posters.

This company obviously took that idea and made a screensaver for it. It may run on Windoze, but it was on thinkgeeks site, which is for 'nix geeks. Plus the sites selling line is "Windows. Now more depressing than ever". Maybe we can cut him some slack?

And Tricky, I dont think he is actually selling anything, but simply trying to show everyone what some company is offering. Does that go against the rules here? I have seen others do the same.

Thinkgeek doesn't share the original site you get them from unless you dig, you can look at the whole collection at:

www.despair.com
