24<title>Introduction to <application>XScreenSaver</application></title>
25
26<para>The <application>XScreenSaver</application> is a modular screen
27saver and locker for the X Window System. It is highly customizable and
28allows the use of any program that can draw on the root window as a
29display mode. The purpose of <application>XScreenSaver</application> is
30to display pretty pictures on your screen when it is not in use, in
31keeping with the philosophy that unattended monitors should always be
32doing something interesting, just like they do in the movies. However,
33<application>XScreenSaver</application> can also be used as a screen
34locker, to prevent others from using your terminal while you are
35away.</para>
