I think it looks a bit on the tacky side, myself, I actually want to remove it as I have a full install, and don't really need it.

To change the colour of the rings needs some job.
First you need to download the source of freemem trayapplet.
Decompress it. You find the .xpm files used in the tray applet.
Find somewhere better ones or do them yourself.
Next compile the source. You get the binary.
Lastly make a pet for it, so that you can easily install and uninstall it if it does not look like as you want. Download the Barrys freemem applet pet to see how it is packaged and clone the structure.

Small advertisement here now. I made mine combining clarf's, Barrys and 01mickos work. You get extra goodies by rightclicking the freememapplet in the tray.

Install the devx, you run 525 right? You can download directly from Quickpet > sfs tab
