    I've been using it for a while now and then yahoo had to buy em out and apple had to copy. They've got things like clocks, timers, hardware monitors, RSS feed readers, ect..

    preaty much all you can do with Samurize just a little nicer and easier.

    Konfabulator is pretty nice, and very easy to use. Samurize is more flexible, but requires more skillz to configure.

    dont use either, 90% of the time i cant see the desktop anyway so its not much use
    i use statbar, uses a minimal amount of screen real estate but is visible all the time and shows all the stats i want :)

    If you can't be bothered or just don't understand Samurize then it's great, otherwise I find it a bit limited.

    I used Konfublator but then I switched to Samurie cause I found samurize easier to customize to my own needs.

    I've been using Konfabulator for aaaaages now. It's really handy on this work laptop cos I have the weather forecast on there in a neat little icon and my train timetable so I can see whether it's worth leaving the office and running for a train :)

    On my home PC it's main use is for the RSS feeds I'm so addicted to...

    I used it for sime time on my mac (under panther). I only used the Weather widget. But don't use it anymore. I will probably get tiger soon anyways..
