Must have desktop programs
Here are some desktop programs that I love, and they don't eat up much ram and processor usage (depending on your machine)
The first program that I will introduce is Glass2k, this little thing allows you to have a transparent taskbar along with transparent windows. You can set the level of transparency by adjusting the settings in the program itself by turning on the "Transparency Popup"

The second program that I will introduce is zMatrix. What this thing does is it puts the matrix code scrolling down your screen, it's really cool. You can change the color, speed, strings, and processor usage.
Last but not least is Rainmeter. It is the clock looking thing, taskbar at the top of the screen, and sidebar on the right.

I have Rainmeter already, but I only use it for the System specs and for some folder links to un-clutter my desktop. (With all my coding and school related projects, I have to organize everything once every 2 weeks-ish, and that's because I've filled all my desktop space... lol.)
zMatrix looks cool! I'm getting it to try out now.

Nice to know the desktop works in layers.
Wallpaper > icons > the matrix thing >gadgets
Noticed that it overlays the icons which kinda got annoying and lead to me uninstalling it
