|Toungue twisters aside, desktop widgets are pretty cool. I happened to stumble across Konfabulator today -- an application which runs cross-platform widgets on WindowsXP & MacOS. What is a widget? Well.. not to be vague, but it can be anything you want it to be. Konfabulator allows interaction with WindowsXP programs.. so you could have a widget that sits on your desktop and tells you what your CPU load is at or run a widget that reminds you about important events and reskin or group information important to you into a single widget.
