When I had an idea of a cool gadget to add, I searched WinLive then BAM. only 20 gadgets. WTF. So yeah, RIP gadget. You were barely used, but you were very useful when you are

    I disliked gadgets from the start so I just disabled them as I much prefer a clean desktop.

Then I use the built in weather gadget to check the weather. Also, I use the Vista Notes Gadget in 7, Calendar, and Currency Converter to convert between local and US currency.
