    No more Sidebar. Microsoft is removing Windows Sidebar from Windows 7, but the Windows Gadgets infrastructure remains and will be expanded. In Windows 7, Gadgets can only be viewed on the desktop. As such, the Gadget Gallery found in Windows Sidebar will be globally available and renamed to Desktop Gadget Gallery.

    That's good. I use the gadgets, but dislike the sidebar (especially since it keeps bl**dy disappearing.)

    Ditto. That's why I detach them. I'm just not fond of the sidebar itself.... :)

    I must be the only person that likes and uses the sidebar, but then again I do use 4 monitors so I dont realy loose any screen space.

    I use it on the BIG monitor because it makes these forums look 'more right' with the spacing, plus I do kind of like it ...

    I never did like the Sidbar. The best you could say was that it looked pretty for a resource hog.

    I use the sidebar, but as long as I can still use the gadgets I'm ok with not having it. Interesting, but not necessary.
