Gkrellm as Linux system status monitor is still king of my hill. I tried to give Conky a new try while being in the process of getting to know the Awesome window manager and configuring to taste (still mostly on floating layout though). The Gkrellm CPU diagram displays system, user and nice times, while Conky does not differ between those. Similar for the network traffic for instance.
Hopefully, #Gkrellm never dies.
