I want a good one. Yahoo Widgets takes a lot of resources and doesn't show what i what it to show.

I want one that shows me my CPU and RAM usage, system uptime and weather and is in one program not multiple like yahoo.

You guys know any?

EDIT: also like to show internet usage.

Yeah, Samurize can take a while to configure, but it can be fit to a lot of applications.

What about the internet connection speed? What sidebar gets that? In the desktop picture, it shows that, but the rest of the screen doesn't suggest that person has vista...

Yahoo widgets is all I cnan think of, but seriously, why need gadgets and all that stuff? All it does is take up resources and bloats my desktop. If I'd need gadgets and stuff like that, I'd need a 15" LCD screen and call it my dashboard, like a car type of thing.

Vista is okay, but not with the sidebar.

WOW! The Yahoo widgets have anything and everything that you'd ever want right from your desktop! I have 2 clocks, analog and digital, a bandwidth graph, and even sticky notes! MWAHAHAHA
