Windows "A feature mimicking Apple's 'widgets' scheduled to appear in Microsoft's Windows Vista will also show in the current Windows XP operating system, a Vista product manager said. According to Sean Alexander, a group product manager with Microsoft, the so-called 'gadgets' in Vista will be produced for Windows XP as well." In related news, here are some new screenshots of the latest Office 12 build.

That's funny, Konfabulator works now, and its widgets are (mostly) cross-platform. http://www.konfabulator.com/

I like its implementation better than OS X's Dashboard, in fact... Konfabulator has totally conquered all of the computers I use. As soon as my wife saw the weather forecast widget, she asked to have it installed on her machine as well. :-)

It's an awesome product, and it's free, courtesy of Yahoo!.
