yo, i really dig a lot of the look and feel of the linux stuff out there, particularly conky. im running windows 7 instead of linux because it handled the raid install better, and because wine....well....lets be honest...Wine is not so hot..

ANYWAY, can you guys post some links to some conky style system monitors to have on the desktop for windows 7? i really hate the look of a lot of the stupid fisher-price looking gadgets and widgets and junk, i like the 'smarter looking' conky type stuff, http://www.linuxscrew.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/co...

lemme know some of your preferences!

For a quick system overview, I prefer CPUID HWMonitor. You could also try Piriform Speccy. None of them look anything like your screenshot though.

thanks for the input! those are the programs im looking for in functionality, but yes you are right in the sense that they aren't what im looking for in aesthetics. i like the way conky integrates into the desktop without launching in a new window. thanks again though! PS, i notice you are proudly south african. after the world cup my friend and i ordered a leftover box of 60 vuvuzelas for $100 w/ an $80 shipping fee....we sold all of them for $10 each. I bought a ukulele with the split profits. Thank you for hosting the most profitable world cup evar.

Cool! I had no idea vuvuzelas were in such demand. Where are you based?
