While searching for a utility to provide me with system specific information, such as memory used, CPU usage and free disk space, to say the least, I stumbled upon a wonderful tool!
I’m always on the quest for nifty little tools and gadgets, especially ones with a small footprint and great functionality. While reading a blog I read about this wonderful little tool that actually prints system information, such as memory and CPU usage, onto your desktop background.
I immediately downloaded it and tried it (it’s freeware) and I have to say, it’s absolutely awesome!!
Check it out and give it a try! BGInfo

Omar and I are attending the Microsoft MVP MEA Open Days 2006 in Antalya, Turkey. I have to say, if there is one thing I’ve learned so far, it’s that when you give freely to the community the community will give back to you, one way or the other.
I really look forward to going back to Kuwait and work really hard, because knowing what I know now, things are really falling into perspective. I’ve learned a lot here, even about things I really thought I knew quite well.
Things like Windows Vista RC1 (and the many new enhancements there), Office 2007, LINQ (and DLINQ) and Atlas! I’ll be blogging about all of these and much more within the coming weeks so stay tuned.
