Hmm, looks decent enough. Though its accuracy really depends on if Microsoft can continue their development of the OS as planned.

Here it is but it is a WINRAR file so you need to change the name to .rar

Hate to burst everyone bubble on this, but the countdown is way off, the person who made this, set the release date as January, so this isn't accurate at all. =(

Though I can make everyone happy a bit and say that I fixed the inaccuracy, and here is the final product.

Okay bare with me if it doesn't work for you, seems to have mixed results.

Steps

1. Download and unzip this file: Attachment 16471
2. Move the english.Gadget file to C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets (NOT SHELL:GADGETS)
3. Open Gadget Gallery and run it.

Again, if it doesn't work sorry but it seems to have mixed results, if i turn it into an installer it doesn't do a thing, so I have no clue whats up with them.
