TBH they suck, when i first heard of them i was all "ZOMG WIDGETS ON MY DESKTOP COOL" but then i failed to find a USEFUL widget tha was worth using up my RAM so for me they fail.

that site i posted above has tutorials and links to everything youll need sometimes i think there called desktop objects but i could be wrong. if you dont already check out window blinds

BTW my typing is really bad on all my posts 2nyt and lezy (<<hence the "2NYT") but its really late so ..sue me
