Similar to Rainmeter for Windows, GeekTool for Mac can be more subtle and is definitely more info-driven than straight eyecandy. These featured GeekTool desktops are a union of informative and aesthetically pleasing.

We've touched on GeekTool before, but just to refresh your memory: GeekTool is a preference pane plugin for Mac used to display various types of information on the desktop using a few basic plugins. While the plugins can be intimidating at first glance, GeekTool has a dedicated community that has already created a great launching point for those interested in taking the leap in to desktop customization.
