      Conky Is not a Desktop customisation platform, it is a system monitor.

      I thinks it is more like a desktop customize software that include some system monitor function, not mainly design as a system monitor, and it is definitely not a conky clone or any alternative.

      Conky does not customize Desktop, it is a system monitor, Rainmeter shows some info but it is designed to customize the user interface.

      GKrellM vs Conky
      pros, cons and recent comments
      I've used GKrellM for years in Linux. Very simple to set up and displays the info I like to keep an eye on. I didn't realise it's available on Windows too.
