Default Needing help in KDE!

I've noticed this feature in quite a few window managers including KDE. Its this sort of system stats bar that is either on the left or right side on the desktop. Here is a picture just to show you what I mean:

It is on the lower left side on the picture above.
Can someone please tell me what this is and how to enable it.

Thanks.

heh, umm that is not my desktop, I just found that pic on google to use as an example.

EDIT: You must admit, it does look nice. If only microsoft would make themes for linux, imagine how much better that picture would look?
