We ve seen some simple desktops and some busy ones, but this one from reader Peregerine, walks the line pretty well.

If you d like to make this for your own Windows machine, the first thing you ll need is a copy of Rainmeter, and some tips to make the most of it.

Now if you d like to get the same look, here are the components Peregerine used:

The Rainmeter system tweaking and monitoring tool for Windows

The Binary Clock skin for Rainmeter to create the binary clock

The Color Flow skin for Rainmeter to create the date display

The MUSIC skin for Rainmeter to create the Now Playing display in the upper left

That s about it.
