Is there a reason why you are asking? – bneely Jan 26 '12 at 0:32
I wanted to look at the .qtz file in Quartz Composer to see how the Word of the Day screen saver was made. And to see what font it used. FYI, it uses Baskerville SimiBold. – Collin Jan 26 '12 at 21:18

The defaults screensavers are in /System/Library/Screen Savers.
