Rainmeter is an amazing utility for windows vista and 7 users.It is a free windows customization tool for everybody out there who wish to enhance their windows desktop.
This software provides you with different skins that you can place on your desktop which will provide you a variety of information like:

You can do the following things with Rainmeter:

You can rearrange and customize these skins as per your choice.
I have never seen anything like RainMeter before. It is one of the most innovative ways of organizing your desktop. Only other software that comes remotely close is KlipFolio Dashboard.
It is very easy to install and the files it uses to keep record of the skins are there in your ‘applications data’ folder and the skins are in your documents which means that you don’t need to run it as an administrator.[subscribe-to-us]
These are open source skins and you can now customize your desktop the way you want to. They are just .ini files which have inbuilt modules called ‘measures’ which create meters that provide you all the information.
This is definitely the software for you. You can now customize your desktop according to your style and taste.
