I'd like to display the output of some command-line scripts on my Windows desktop. I believe Rainmeter and Samurize can do this, but I find Rainmeter kind of baffling and frankly it's just overkill for my needs anyway. And Samurize looks like a dead project at this point.
For an example of exactly what I want, look at GeekTool for OSX: http://projects.tynsoe.org/en/geektool/
For each desktop item, Geektool lets you choose colors, the script command whose output you want to display, how often to refresh it, and you can also choose colors and transparency. That's basically it and that's all I want.
Is there a Windows equivalent? I don't need any fancy system monitoring capability built into the app itself.
