Rainmeter: Windows skin customizer. Anyone use it?

I just discovered it today and think I'll have some fun messing around with it. Does anyone have any experience with it?

Nice. That clean, simplistic look is what I'm after on my laptop.

surprisingly it works on all os even xp.

just install rainmeter from its page(require internet connection during install)

and download elementary. Start elementary and it will have a tab already checked for "start elementary now"

not all skins will start right after install and you have to start right clicking and picking out the corrct skins..not tooooo hard for for some it may be wierd navigating though(righ clicking) rainmeter icons.
