Hi Nahuel,

I'd make it a custom QWidget with the FramelessWindowHint flag. I refer 
you to the 'Shaped Clock' example of the Qt documentation:

The Python equivalent, 'shapedclock.py', ships with the documentation 
and examples of recent releases of PyQt 4.

Just have the widget paint your OSD instead of a clock and I'd say you 
have a good basis to work from. :)
