make my desktop pretty (widgets for Vista 64?)

so i recently upgraded my desktop to the 64-bit version of Vista (to get my feet wet for Windows 7 later this year...)

i was already running Vista 32-bit but didn't bother too much to mess with the GUI. now that i look at the thing, i realize Vista's setup is sorta clunky and not utilitarian. so i'm looking for some good alternatives to make Vista nice looking AND useful.

i already run RocketDock and love it. if it weren't for the lack of native 64-bit support, RocketDock would be perfect. anyone know of any Dock programs that are natively 64-bit?

i've also been looking at Rainmeter, Konfabulator/Yahoo Widgets, and Samurize as options, but none of them seem to be natively 64-bit either. it's a little frustrating. and there's no way i will use Windows' own Gadget Sidebar, because the gadgets are also clunky and there's little to no community support.

does anyone have any suggestions to customize my precious little machine?

    Firstly, what does it matter if Rainmeter or Rocketdock are natively 64-bit?

    Secondly, Rainmeter is available in 64-bit.
