I don't know how to program windows gadgets but it shouldn't be too difficult because you just have to open and parse either this

or this

Edit: Just found out that gadgets are actually written in html/javascript... this shouldn't be hard. Maybe I'll try it.

lol... Windows XP and older Windows versions don't have gadgets as far as I know. Why are you asking for a gadget (and show a gadget which is for 7/vista) if you don't even have Win 7 or Vista?! Makes no sense

I see, I'm on UNIX, so that has no use for me. However, who wrote that? user DC or you? I don't really understand.

He made it just today, some hours ago i believe. And maybe he didnt realized how nice that might be, so not posted it into the news section.

Also, now i dont know, like with XP, but is there a way to use in under a unix system, like ubuntu? lol

If I can see the source I may try to adapt it for screenlets. That's WIN7-like gadgets for Linux.

Then no need to adapt it, anyone can just install screenlets and just paste the script like it says here. It could be installed as web application/widget.
