Enhanced your Desktop, make it Organized and with functionality built in

So I decided to improve and manage better my desktop as I was getting tired of folders, files and short cuts just lying on the desktop, which was turning out to be unorganized and annoying to my eyes.

Since am into knowing the bandwidth usage for my uploads and downloads the solutions was rainmeter provides “customizable skins, like memory and battery power, RSS feeds and weather forecasts, right on your desktop. Many skins are even functional: they can record your notes and to-do lists, launch your favorite applications, and control your media player – all in a clean, unobtrusive interface that you can rearrange and customize to your liking.”

The initial rainmeter skin is simple and aims at minimalistic features of raimeter, rainmeter itself is free and open source allowing individuals to be creative and create more variation of rainmeter and share with everyone else.

My favorite after trying so many is Avengers S.H.I.E.L.D OS which has options allowing you to customize the UI without coding. And the end result for my Desktop is as seen below.

I can access my applications right on the desktop including launching favorite website by just a click, I can see the ram and CPU usage, and not to mention I can control music right on the desktop as rainmeter integrates with winamp player.
