The Best Thing For Windows 8, No More Desktop Gadgets

Posted by on July 5, 2012 at 4:27 pm

With the upcoming release of Windows 8 sneaking up on us, we are seeing tons of news and rumors leaking in. The latest comes from Win8China, who has been able to obtain one of the latest builds. Gadgets were added to Windows Vista to I guess compete with what Mac’s Dashboard Widgets. I tried to like them but I just found them dumb. Maybe you like gadgets and widgets but I really couldn’t find a use for them. 

Want to know what time it is? Look at this cool analog clock in the top right corner to see it. What? Why don’t I just look at the bottom right corner at the digital clock that’s built in. Yo dawg, I heard you like pictures so I put a slide show on top of your slide show background.

Just glancing at what kind of gadgets are available I see you can stare at you Xbox avatar, search different sites and even quickly go into sleep mode, shut down or restart your computer. If I want to stare at my Xbox avatar, I will turn on my Xbox or buy a Windows Phone, lol. I’m just kidding Johnny and Keith!

But seriously I see no purpose in having gadgets on my desktop so pretty please Microsoft make this a thing and keep them away! That is all.
