"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy"

I got to know rainmeter earlier this month. I found the widgets a bit of too much, Core temperature, disk usage and what not. Why would I want to see that every time I turn to my desktop? A big no no. Being a student, I wanted something productive, informative and at the same time something fun.

Oh and the search option offers various search engines using the drop down menu!
