Publisher's Description

Rainmeter is a desktop customization platform. Through Rainmeter, you can enhance your Windows computer at home or work with skins: handy, compact applets which float freely on your desktop, much like Windows Sidebar gadgets, or dashboard widgets for the Mac.

Rainmeter skins provide you with useful information at a glance. It's easy to keep an eye on your system resources, like memory and battery power, or your online data streams, including email, RSS feeds, and weather forecasts. Many skins are even functional: they can record your notes and to-do lists, launch your favorite applications, and send your tweets to Twitter - all in a clean, unobtrusive interface that you can rearrange and customize to your liking.

I would like to rate this higher but please, please tell us up front that the program is a lot bigger and that the installer will download a heck of a lot more that the 1.3mb. I vote for more honesty on the web.

I've been using rainmeter for quite a while now. Besides the eyecandy you can really boost your productivity especially by using skin packages like Enigma. It allows you to fetch RSS feeds to your desktop, set up calendar events and other clever tasks. This is my current rainmeter desktop http://ratemydesktop.org...S/Rainmeter_Enigma.html Rainmeter has come a long way since it was first released.

Well I figured out what the problem was. They've made anti-aliasing an option on images now, not just fonts. That essential spoils older skins and is a rather odd thing to do.

Oh well, I made a new skin and all is well

Been using this for awhile with no problems until now. The icons in the theme I'm using have become jagged. Reverted back and they look normal again

@HeilNizar:
Rainmeter is open source. Try the following build which doesn't need any MSVC runtime installed: http://www.multiupload.com/RL165OUYWF

virustotal doesn't load for me so feel free to scan the file yourself, but it's a vanilla build from the svn trunk (with some project file related changes which shouldn't have any effect)

Very nice and FREE, I wished it was completely portable without depending on c++ redistributable package.

If you use it AND install it in portable mode you don't need to back anything up. Just copy everything BUT the new ini and you're good to go. I run mine from a separate drive than c so even if c crashes and burns it won't matter.

This is one of the best desktop enhancement programs out there. It can be allot to take in for a first time user but once you get a handle on it, it will be one of the must have programs for you.
I modify and combine the skins to suit my tastes and love the flexibility of the program for creating just the right look. Just remember to always make a copy of any configs or skins before you start messing with them so you can return things to their default state if you run into any issues. Really easy program to work with once you learn what you are doing.

This prog is a breeze actually as it has themes built in. Enigma takes up the least amount of desk real estate imo. Updating respects your settings so it's easy as can be. Way better than bloated widget aps.
Samuraize was the nightmare, this is kiddy stuff.

Yes, this app is not the friendliest at first glance but this is also a power user's tool. Once you get the hang of how it works you will find that it really is a great successor to the dormant Samurize. Take a few mins to poke around the ini files and you'll figure it out.
