"RAM CPU Taskbar for Windows 7" (Not docked taskbar icon but using the taskbar itself to display and monitor RAM/CPU)
"This is interesting – it takes your Window 7 taskbar and turns the entire bar into a dynamic visual monitor for RAM utilization & CPU utilization.
It essentially creates a color band on the taskbar in the background that updates regularly to tell you how much of your system resources are in use. The colors themselves have meaning: Green denotes Normal, followed by Orange for Warning, and then Red which stands for Critical or high RAM usage ..."
Like Kurt said, this is interesting... I don't know if I 've seen the entire taskbar used this way. Taskbar icons, sure, but nothing like this.
The zip contains a single exe and for me, ran the first time with no problems.
Oh yeah, the author? He only has a bit of time to work on this as he's in High School...
