It's really to bad that they don't have a version of Rainmeter for the Mac. It's such an excellent concept. I believe that Mac users would really embrace this app. It would be a real asset to anyone who used it. Unfortunately, the developers don't seem to have any interest in supporting it on the Mac, and as far as I know no one has stepped up to the place to try and create a Mac fork of the project. The alternatives available to the Mac that are commonly sited don't really offer the depth and breadth of configurability that Rainmeter does.

Looks nice but presumably causes crash of my win xp explorer. Also, handling of settings etc. could be more handy.
