Google gadgets?

"google gadgets as desklets" - I didn't know these could work on an Linux system. Considering the Symphony base is Ubuntu, does that mean there's a way to run them on Ubuntu itself? Gnome lacks a good desklet system (gdesklets doesn't have much, and while Jackfield is promising, it's stalled).

The mezzo design looks pretty nice!

From what I understand, the desktop runs a Mozilla layer allowing for web technologies to be utilized. It's not running Gnome itself, rather another desktop environment (which particular one escapes me at the moment) with the Mozilla layer running "full screen", as it were.
