    Lightbulb Running Apple DashBoard Widgets on Linux

    I just saw this on Digg. It's an infrastructure for running Apple's Dashboard widgets on Linux. Plans are to additionally support Yahoo's Widget Engine (previously Konfabulator), Microsoft's Gadget Sidebar, and Opera Widgets. Some slick and useful eye candy for the desktop.

    Re: Running Apple DashBoard Widgets on Linux

    SWEEET. I was just playing with Yahoo Widgets and was thinking that it's really a shame I can't use them on my Linux machines. Even though I like desklets there are alot more people making Widgets
    Since I get asked alot, I am originally from Ukraine but am Russian by nationality. My nick means specter in Russian.

    you can help with the development by testing things out...head over there and find out how to download the svn, build it and run it.
