Xsnow is the X-windows application that will let it snow on the root, in between and on windows. Santa and his reindeer will complete your festive-season feeling.
All you KDE-users can now be even happier with a KDE-enabled Xsnow 1.42! The snow will magnificently wipe out your icons, but not to worry, they're not really gone. By wiping with a window or something you can make them reappear. Car owners are used to this for years. Thanks to Robin Hogan (R.J.Hogan@reading.ac.uk) who figured this out for xpenguin.
After 5 years here's a new Xsnow! The program has been around bit, and is now even making it snow on many windows machines, and we're not talking X-Windows or Macintosh here. So, it's about time for an improved (hopefully) version for X. Xsnow 1.41 works with modern X servers like XFree86, where older versions made snow build up somewhere in the sky at times, defying gravity. Xsnow 1.41 was tested with Linux (Suse 6.0), SUN Solaris 2.5.1, Silicon Graphics Irix 6.5. Please let me know if Xsnow does not behave on your system.
Xsnow 1.41 features a new Santa, many thanks to Thomas Linder (Thomas.Linder@gmx.net).
It is now possible to slow Santa down. See the option -santaupdatefactor

This means Xsnow is available freely and you may give it to other people as is, but I retain all rights. Therefore it does not classify as 'Public Domain' software. It *is* allowed to package Xsnow for Unix/Linux distributions, CD-Roms etc, and to make the necessary changes to makefiles etc. to facilitate this.
