Both Geektool and Nerdtool are very nice programs, although neither have been updated for a fair while, which has led to many problems for them both. Nerdtool may have a slightly more accessible interface than geektool, however the large community around geektool is definitely a plus. The one reason I would however rate Nerdtool as the better app is it's performance, the impact on system resources is significantly lower, and as such will mean a better battery life with no loss of functionality.
