Rainmeter is an open source widget platform which displays customizable skins/widget, like memory, 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 latest version is fully backwards compatible with skins written for any version of Rainmeter. You can simply install the beta on top of your existing Rainmeter installation. There is no need to uninstall. All your existing skins and settings will be preserved.
