Little widget like applications like calculator/stickies etc were around in OS9 and earlier, some accessed via the apple menu, some in the shortcut bar/tab at the bottom of the screen, dashboard is just a different way for users to access them. If you said apple 'borrowed' fast user switching then it might be closer to the mark.

I do find it a little disappointing that a huge company like microsoft cannot innovate a bit more and give us features BEYOND what OSX has but seem content to just achieve parity.

So who did apple buy the idea from? Since it made its debut on the original mac in 1984.

When apple copied WinXP's fast user switching, Steve Jobs said so at a keynote to introduce 10.3.
He said Microsoft did a great job so we copied them. Huge differance from Bill Gates who doesn't mention coping apple in public. Microsoft has been copying Apple for OVER 20 YEARS.

I need to find that 15+ year old demo steve jobs gave of Nextstep OS (The father of OSX)so people can see how far ahead that os was compared to the competition.

Apple didn't buy that, they took the idea from Konfabulator. As the link above states, Andy Hertzfield and Bud Tribble had the idea for a primative dashboard well before anyone even thought about it. In a way Apple did have prior art, BUT stealing the name widgets is pretty stupid.

Even if Vista sucks, Gadgets is a pretty good name.

He took the name because he knows microsoft will commercialize it. It's just not possible with apple. The market share is so lopsided, it just isn't possible. Microsoft can cash in on it. It's just busniess.

i think the 3-d "window scroller" or whatever it is called is not what is efficient. the F9 function of expose is what I always wanted. MS should stop trying to be ambitious with mythical tables that read info from my cell phone (which IMO should just be a phone) and giant plasmas (that only the elite can afford) that show me the traffic congestion on my route to work.

give me {censored} i need.

lol. Think again. By the time Vista is out, leopard probably will too. I assume that will mean OSX will then have more features, and unless microsoft wants to lose more money by delaying vista further to copy them, then vista will still not be on par. Also, although I admit I haven't heard any reports on vista's expected minimum requirements, the last I checked they were about 4-10 times greater than for OSX. (I've run OSX on a 233mhz iMac with like 256MB RAM. It ran decently. Last time I checked vista was gonna require like a 3GHz processor and 1GB of RAM just to function.)

Oh, btw. My friend was posting these videos around and got the most hilarious response I've ever seen. These are the biggest idiot newbs I have ever had the misfortune of observing.
