I use Yahoo widgets. They have a very good, customizable calendar, named "Month Calendar", which can be downloaded here: Month Calendar - Yahoo! Widgets And there are other Yahoo widgets which may be useful, like weather, etc. I used Microsoft gadgets until they quit listing them, then found Yahoo Widgets and was pleasantly surprised. They are very non-obtrusive insfar as resource usage.
