GeekTool

"GeekTool is a PrefPane (System Preferences module) for Panther or Tiger to show system logs, unix commands output, or images (i.e. from the internet) on your desktop (or even in front of all windows)."

The Linux kids have been doing this forever. Widgets are neat, but they don't have the tty non-anti-aliased grittiness of Geektool scripts.

Indeed. Unlike widgets, it's light on both CPU and GPU.

This is a MUSt have app for Mac.
Scripts can be anything unix or AppleScript.
