    Are we going to see more coverage from WinHEC? Nice article, but short. Seems to be missing a follow up. Reply

    Ya just gotta laugh at the "mushrooms" that show up at WinJIVE to be fed manure from Bill -Yes I'm entitled to STEAL - Gates himself.

    Sheep like to be led down a primrose path.

    e·co·sys·tem
    n.
    An ecological community together with its environment, functioning as a unit.

    e·col·o·gy
    n.
    1. The science of the relationships between organisms and their environments. Also called bionomics.
    2. The relationship between organisms and their environment.

    Notice that ecosystems have to do with living organisms. There is absolutely no such thing as a "hardware ecosystem." Idiot marketing people need to stop abusing the english language. There are plenty of ways to describe what they are attempting to describe. We don't need to destroy an otherwise good and purposeful word by putting it so out of context.

    personally, I think it's about time. I'm glad Microsoft is stepping up (if only because they HAVE TO)

    Too bad those widgets are a direct copy of OS X 10.4's. The only original thing about them from the screenshots is the "window" (HA!) view of the weather.

    Golly, I wonder where Apple http://www.konfabulator.com">got that great idea?! Reply

    True, Apple grabbed the basic idea from Konfabulator (though that in turn was loosely inspired by Apple's own little utilites from way back when). But it wasn't until after widgets were known to be a feature of Tiger that Microsoft 'mysteriously' changed its sidebar concept to behave much more like Dashboard or Konfabulator. Reply
