‘Orb Clock’ is striking must-have eye-candy for your desktop

Screenlets fans looking for well-designed eye-candy to place on their desktops should check out the following all-in-one clock Screenlet by Mickeyz.

Available in two main themes – flip and ‘orb’, both pictured below, – the screenlet can display resource usage and network information alongside the time and date.

Note that the screenlet requires the use of the updated Screenlets engine, available via PPA @ launchpad.net/~screenlets-dev/+archive/ppa.

Grumbles

The early Natty testers amongst you may notice a small resize grip in the bottom right corner of the screenlet. It’s unsightly and useless: you can’t use it to resize a screenlet.
