Geek Tech Software: Konfabulator is the coolest addition to Windows - and Mac- ever. A series of 'widgets' that have date time, battery life, CPU usage, stock quotes, weather, calendar, Wifi Strength, task reminder lists, games and more. They can be resized, moved around on the desktop, some can be customized. You can adjust the opacity -transparency - of the objects and make them permanently on top of active windows but see them and the content behind. They are damn clever. Comes with about a dozen of them. And there are hundreds of others to choose from.
It is shareware, and you can try it for a few weeks free before the pop up disables it. Really cool stuff and it enhances the desktop in many ways. While it doesn't re-skin XP, but makes XP a different experience. One last thing, you can have a resizable picture viewer which will display and rotate images from the folder you select - and sub folders. So if you are sitting in Starbucks and have it running and there is some questionable pics in there it will eventually grab them. No, that didn't happen to me in Starbucks... :) Give this a look. Oh, and there is a countdown timer. I now have 211days 6 hours and 50 mins till the Tour begins. :P
