    I think its htop but I am not sure . htop is one of the best process manager and I perfer it over all other process managers.
    Execute this
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install htop
    htop
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I thought it was conky.

    I've used conky a lot in the past and it looks like that, but maybe something else also looks like that.
