Smile Cool Sidebar System Monitor - where?


I'm still new to Linux, and have been researching all sorts of things about it. One thing that is quite interesting to me is the idea of having a little graphical readout of my system specs when I'm in a KDE session... I keep seeing screenshots where someone has xmms, cpu usage, network usage, hd usage, etc. etc. in a slick little window in the corner of their screen...

Anyone have any suggestions of the slickest, most compact and efficient system monitor bar out there?

You could either use a set of WindowMaker dockapps (like I do), or gkrellm.

Either karamba or Gkrellm.

Try both and see which you prefer.

Wow!

As usual, amazingly fast replies. I wasn't expecting 3 replies in 15 minutes, thought!

Thanks kindly all for the reference, and I'll start researching and post my opinion in a few days when I can get to try out a few of them.
