Default Spyderbar, smartbar or desktop sidebar

So which one do you think is best?

I downloaded and installed Desktop Sidebar, ran it for a few days then installed Spyderbar. I like Spyderbar better. Couple of bugs but those will be fixed soon.
Bad thing about Spyderbar is that there are no 3rd party skins as of now. Also it seems to be crashing once is a while- anyone else having crash issues or just me.
Good thing is that it is wery easy to vreate your own skins.

Picture below is Spyderbar with no skins and I manually modified the clock color from grey to blue. I had to cut it so I can include it in this message. Blue background that you see if my desktop.

Which one if any do you use or would recommend?

Im not a fan of sidebars yet I used google desktop which is similar and I new my stupid mother would end up clicking on something and messing my comp up. It allows the foolish people to tinker and destroy everything down with sidebars!
