To update the list, should we have to open the text file each time? Oh.. that seems tedious if we have several lists.

Take a look at this:

I think it fits the bill perfectly, and is light on resources.

Gina, keep the tips coming. I read Lifehacker 1025 times per day.

Folks, I figured out a way to enable a quick edit of the todo.txt file. Here is what you do:

1) On the right frame, select the "Input" tab
2) Check the box marked "Allow Input Controls"
3) Click "Add"
4) On the popup window that appears, under "Link Meter To:" Enter notepad.exe (or the path to your favorite text editor) followed by the path to your to do file. On my machine, I entered:

  notepad.exe c:\TO DO.txt

5) Click "Next"
6) Choose an action from the list and check the box next to it (I chose "Right Mouse Click")
7) Click "Finished"
8) Save your .ini file
9) Right click the Samurize tray icon and select the .ini file you just saved to reload it.

Test the action you chose to make sure it worked.

What I'd like to know is how anyone can stay productive with keeping their desktops blank.

I just don't see how you can be productive at cutting your focus between icons and the texts when you're in the desktop.

It seems that if you really want something in front of your monitor, using a real sticky note is much more practical and if you want something fast, a tape recorder or scratchpad besides the monitor is even quicker.
