Rain gauge 220.127.116.1192 – Neowin
Rainmeter is a free open source platform that allows skins to run on the desktop. Rainmeter lets you display customizable skins on your desktop, from hardware usage meters to fully functional audio visualizers. You are only limited by your imagination and creativity.
Rainmeter is the best known and most popular desktop customization program for Windows. Enhance your Windows computer at home or work with skins; handy, compact applets that float freely on your desktop. Rainmeter skins provide you with useful information at a glance. It’s easy to keep an eye on your system resources, such as memory and battery power, or your online data feeds, including email, RSS feeds, and weather forecasts.
Many skins are even functional: they can save your notes and to-do lists, launch your favorite apps, and control your media player – all in a clean, unobtrusive interface that you can rearrange and customize to your liking. Rainmeter is both an app and a toolkit.
Rainmeter is open source software distributed free of charge under the terms of the GNU GPL v2 license.
