As more and more people start using computers Linux is slowly gaining market share. I don't care about the reasons since I could go on and on and on about them - I simply look at what's happening and act accordingly. Leaving aside music/video players and other really popular tools Linux system monitors also are facing an increased demand and today we'll take a quick look at Conky.

Why Conky? The name is funny it's lightweight has support for a bunch of popular music players IMAP/POP3 and can even be extended using Lua support or any of your own pieces of code. Sounds pretty cool right? Sure you may say that this is a program for experts but that is completely wrong since Conky works great out of the box although you may want to take a closer look at its documentation to take full advantage of all the goodies coming in the box...

This is the free Linux system monitor I have for you today and if you want to see more screenshots just go to this page. That's all folks!
