Microsoft Gadgets/Sideshow

Among some of the great features within Windows Vista; Super Fetch, WPF, etc one of
the most exciting in my opinion are these things called Microsoft
. I know konfabulator has existed for a while and Apple has widgets on
OS X Tiger but Windows Gadgets are alot more than little floaty things on your desktop/sidebar.
They can be displayed on external peripherals;
a keyboard, a secondary screen on a mobile device giving access to cached data such
as emails and calender appointments when the device is switched off. If the device
is switched on you can do alot more, a media player without having to have your laptop
open :)

All I need now is Windows Vista so I can play around with them
