    Recommended desktop widgets?

    I've seen screenshots of some great-looking desktops with awesome widgets, etc. Does anyone have any widgets or widget collection sites they'd like to recommend? [I wasn't sure where to put this thread]

    Screenlets and Conky are alive, well and in the software center. Conky requires a bit of home work to get started though. I have not used Screelets for quite a while but they are still available.

    Or, install Voyager, which has Conky built in.

    Thanks everyone! I'll look into all of these! (don't think I'm going to go forward with Voyager though.) I'm really liking Ubuntu, as well as the awesome and helpful user community.

    I agree, will be looking into setting up wither screenlets or conky and will perhaps drop a tut in the begginers section.
