Taskbar Meters: Cool CPU and Memory usage meter for Windows 7

One application that resides permanently on my system tray is the Task Manager icon, that displays CPU utilization. I have been doing this ever since I switched to Windows XP from Windows 98. Today I noticed a new application released by the Codeplex community.

Just pin the application to the taskbar to keep track of your computer’s resource usage. You can configure the update frequency and the percentages that determine "yellow" and "red" states.

The jump list gives you quick access to the Task Manager and the Resource Monitor too. Neat.
