Is it worth having?

The temptation is too too much.

It sounds wonderful. What on earth is it?

thanks for the link...however I'm still a bit confused about what it is. Some of it looks similar to that Mac Tiger feature, is it like that?

It allows for Widgets to be displayed on your Desktop. These widgets, well can be anything from displaying TV listings, system info, Courier tracking information, 6 Day weather forecasts...

FE - It has it's uses.

Charence - You mean Dashboard? Then yes...

What's a widget? click here_(computing)

I now see that it can be whatever you want it be (or so it says)...quite like the weather feature

Thanks. I think! Trivia Quizzes come to mind. -:))

the weather widget doesn't seem to work all of the time. It won't load the weather for Worksop, Sheffield or Nottingham, but has no problem loading the data for London :-( Anyone know how to fix this problem?

Cheers

The weather feature takes data from a US website, so it only recognises major cities outside the US.

I've been using Konfabultor on & off for some time (too long to be eligable for a refund) and love it, the analogue clock is my favourite widget, along with the aero stickies.

I like Konfabulator ... much as I like Dashboard in Tiger. But then I've got a big monitor and the widgets aren't intrusive. I had it for a while on my old machine and finally removed it cos the widgets were too in yer face on a 17" monitor.

I've downloaded the software and I think it's great (especially the weather feature)!
