I'd like to show to some people that FreePascal can do good graphical 
and efficient things :o)
So I organise an eye candy contest, with some simple rules, and I'll 
give three rewards ($150, $100 and $50) for the three best programs.

The rules :
-The end of the contest is December 15th (i may change the date if it 
shows to be way too short)
-The source code of the program (and used pictures + ressources) will be 
posted on Internet under the GPL, so be sure of what you use

-The program MUST : *Compile and work in fullscreen mode under Ubuntu 
6.10 (i386), in at least 640x480, 800x600 and 1024x768 with Gnome or KDE
*Be readable (the will be used as a tutorial for graphics with FP)

-The program COULD :
*Also compile under Win32 and/or MacOS (not necessary but will be good 
to show how powerful FPC is)
*Support some options : printing the FPS, a max FPS limit, or the use of 
a "bpm" global (to synchronise it with music)
*Be used as a screensaver in Linux

You can use anything you want : GLScene, Jedi-SDL, etc...
The test machine will be an Athlon 64 3800+, 1Go DDR, Geforce 7900GTO 
with nvidia proprietary drivers.

What is an eye candy ?
These are Eye-Candy ScreenSavers ;)

Ask if you had questions !
