What is Rainmeter?
Rainmeter is a lightweight desktop customization application for Windows. Rainmeter allows you to display customizable skins on your desktop. This includes information from hardware usage meters to fully functional audio visualizers. It is one of the best desktop customization programs available, allowing you to give your desktop into an attractive, customized look to turn your Desktop into a piece of art! Rainmeter also has a very unique coding language. It Allows Users are to create new skins, that can be shared to other users as well. It has been around since Windows XP. Back then it was used as a tool for displaying basic information on the desktop. Since then it has gained a large community following which has produced high quality skins which can change the whole desktop experience.

How to use it?
Well, its pretty straight forward really. You just download the latest version of Rainmeter from their official website. You should get a setup file which shouldn't need any detailed instructions to proceed with. Once you have it installed, you can start by unloading the default skins, which will appear as installation finishes. To do that, you just need to right-click on any of the skins you see on desktop, and click Unload skin. You can do the same for all the skins which you don't need! Now you can get some cool skins online (check these), and there are a ton of skins to choose from, many of which have a video tutorial to guide you through the process. That's it, you now have your customized desktop!

Should you use Rainmeter?
Okay, now this might not be for everyone. Rainmeter is for people who want to customize their personal computers. Since there is a variety of skins available, you can easily find ones that suit you. Don't worry, you can change the skins, and also remove Rainmeter from your computer, at any time! One last thing according to my personal experience is that, you should be a little familiar with the concept of programming. Rainmeter doesn't ask you to build your own skins, but even though, you might need to further customize the skins you download from community sources. If you don't have any experience, try customizing skins yourself, (if you want to) and you will learn it very quickly!

Does it lower the performance?
A lot of people have been talking about how it impacts the performance of your computer. But, in my experience, i don't think its much of a deal. If you have a good computer with at least 4GB of RAM and 128MB of VRAM, you are good to go! Even if you think its causing problems, you can easily close rainmeter from the Taskbar icon, and continue with your gaming (or work) to ensure best performance!
