Free as in freedom
Originally a client request, CAS-SGL (short for 'Cellular Automata Simulator - SkeletonGL')
is a high performance Conway's game of life simulator that allows for both custom and random universe seeding, seed saving and loading, as well as real time analysis of the current state of the simulated universe. It takes full advantage of modern rendering techniques to prevent the GPU from bottlenecking performance, as well as both VSYNC and unlocked FPS modes to keep it from hogging resources in weaker machines while taking full advantage of high tier processors in enthusiast builds.
It's also a bitchin' screensaver.
OS: Any modern UNIX system.
