Where have all the gadgets gone?
Did Microsoft discontinue offering all but a handful of Sidebar gadgets for the Windows Vista operating system?
When you right click on the Sidebar and chose “Add Gadgets” and then click on “Get more gadgets online” it opens http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...nalize/gadgets They only offer thirty gadgets and that seems to be all.
I know they want to rack in more bucks by forcing you to upgrade to Windows 7, but are all the thousands of gadgets now gone? Any other “safe” place to download them?
Thanks in advance,
Monitor real estate is too valuable
For many users, there is never enough room on the monitor to put everything you want to use at a particular moment. That is why gadgets did not become popular, and why added toolbars are so disliked. Then for those of us who are aging, we like to enlarge the type and other images on the monitor which takes up more space.
