Util - BgInfo

BgInfo (Background Info) is a cool, free tool from the good folks at SysInternals that shows computer info on the desktop:

Especially handy if you work on multiple desktops or servers. Very configurable, can run at startup or periodically update. Just writes to desktop bitmap, so it doesn't consume any additional resources.

Very useful, but old. I can remember the first time I used this tool! I think it was 2003!
