Conky Comments

Needs better manager and customization UI.

Pain to set up. Nearly all widgets are broken out of box without additional coding. There is a third party manager, but it's not stable enough like Rainmeter's manager. Though both doesn't allow any UI for settings, like language, standards etc.
