Hello everyone, this is where Calrad will be discussing the use and designs of the Widget's programs, plug-in concept. Your idea's thoughts and suggestions should be posted here. A few Widgets will be available for everyone to play with soon.

For those who have not read the concept of Widgets or what exactly they are and how we plan to use them, see the links below.

Microsoft uses a similar concept called Gadgets in windows Vista

This is a widget I would like to see. Since Xlobby is the command center of our digital home, it would be nice to be able to leave notes on the touchscreen.

Also, are widgets going to be "on top" of Xlobby, or on the windows desktop? I hope to never see a desktop on my htpc.

I would like a simple finger writing post-it. I dont need different fonts or colors, or anything. I dont need erase, if I mess up I will exit and get another. Just a simple graphic I can write in and put where I want.

From your capture screen, which software did you use for your post-it ?

Great idea Colby. Is that capture from your new skin you've been teasing us with? Beautiful graphics as always!
