Is it a bug? A feature? An oversight? No idea! I was playing around with the gadgets in Windows 7, and apparently there is no limit to the actual number of apps you can drag and drop to the desktop. Well, at least not a limit that I have reached. But then again, I got bored rather quickly of dragging gadgets to the desktop. Watch the video to see what I’m talking about.

Anyone care to write a script to automate this? I’m curios if it would lead to a denial of service. Or even a crash.

edit: now the video works

It's Hilarius!

One thing I'm very interested in.

What program is used to record the video?

Or did he put a camera in front of the screen?

If there is such a program it is brilliant for writing tutorials.

Anybody?

Looks like he used the Problem Steps Recorder, or something similar, maybe Wink , then put all the frames together and increased the speed to play them fast.
