LOL don't get me wrong if I had my way all the boxes at work would have 7 x64 on them but the version of AutoCAD and the engineering software that we are running will not run on 7 even in XP mode..So I'm stuck with a bad ass machine and 32bit OS.. LOL but my Home rig is running 7 Ultimate x64 so all is well..

It's cool, they now have pre made skins you can mess with straight from the opening. Basic rain meter skins (which are most) are very easy to install. Just extract the files to your skins dir. in my documents. Any strings you need to change are easy to find, just ctrl+f it in the text document, but most work straight out of the box

Edit: Unless you're talking about creating your own skins, then I'm in the exact same boat

Try looking here.

http://rainmeter.net/RainCMS/

I'm no expert but if there's anything specific then ask away.

Install rainmeter and then it usually involves downloading and pasting the file(s) into the software's folder in my documents.

The best way, as with so many things, is to install rainmeter and then 'have a go!'

Rainmeter with way too many widgets. I'll admit it's a little busy, but I love it.

I just started using Rainmeter not too long ago and I absolutely love it. Need criticisms on this. I feel like somethings off. The bottom right on the taskbar seems a bit crowded, but it doesn't work when they're all spread out.
