Screenlets

I was very surprised today when I installed the newest “screenlets” version.

The quality of the applets, the number of applets, the way they integrate with your desktop, it’s all done perfectly.

I used lots of “widgets” programs (on kde4, vista, xp) but the newest screenlets version blows all the competition straight out of the water.

I did a piece about Google gadgets a few days ago, well Google’s gadgets aren’t even in the same league. Forget them. You want screenlets.

I’ve complety re-done my desktop today, relying on screenlets to make it work.

This might give you an idea what state the screenlets are in.

The screenlets in the screen shot are all screenlets installed by default.

For installation notes, I’ll send you to “the competition”.

    The screenlets are called “places” and “applications”.

    They come pre-installed if you followed the installation instructions on the site I referred to.

    The dock is called “cairo dock”.
