Oh no… The site offers widgets for both a desktop application and the web, including social networking Web 2.0 site, MySpace. Developers can easily crate and distribute widgets across both the web, and Windows desktop (no Apple!) platforms.

The widgets all work in brilliant unity on both websites and my Vista and XP desktops. By me on
