Windows 7: Best Gadgets!

Windows 7 Ultimate, Ubuntu
 
 

One gadget and 3 yahoo widgets. Can't find the ideal system monitor yet. Fiddling with Rainmeter but requires using my brain.

Limneos' sevenforums Gadget is beautifully executed and excellent for seven forums addiction.
The Yahoo Widgets work really well and are generally better looking than the gadgets. The system monitors however don't work well in 7 yet.
I particularly like the Pocket Weather widget which as you can see has a nice simple forecast popout and links to AccuWeather.

Im particularly searchin for a RSS gadget which looks something like the informer gadget in Yahoo! Something like a list when i bring my mouse over it.

Informer - Yahoo! Widgets
I don't have the link, but I think I once saw a program that convert Yahoo Widgets, Google Gadgets, and others to a Windows Gadget. Sorry I don't have the link, but that may help you.

As far as gadgets, I only have 4 right now.

I'm not really a gadget fan. I find it clutters up the system and often causes a bit of extra system overhead that I can do without. Every now and again, I fire them up and give them a shot...but usually within a day or two, they are all turned back off.

I've also got a diagnosed case of OCD...so constantly seeing my CPU temps or watching the temperature outside is a bit overwhelming for me at times.

Not a big fan of them myself - yet. Seems a bit of a gimmick - unless I come across a really outstanding one
