is there a matrix screensaver, very exactly like in the Matrix movie?


The xscreensaver is a different, than in the Matrix movies parts.
Maybe sbdy, fan, coded that for Linux ?

Yes, there are at least 3 of them for Linux, at least 2 of which are in Xscreensaver. I don't know *precisely* how similar they are to the movie, but I found the GLMatrix screensaver to be pretty darn good.

Make sure you check the ADVANCED tab to change settings to make it more like the movie.
