I'm trying desperately to find a possible replacement to the dockable sidebar in Google Desktop.
I've fallen in love with having my widescreen-estate able to "HUD" me to things like my weather, news, mail, and even the random images.
Problem is that I want more than the Google Desktop sidebar wants to give (better placement of components, more than one bar, etc...).
I figure there has to be something out there like this (at least I really, REALLY hope there is).
I would figure someone like StarDock would have done this already (with their crazy desktops and all), but I just looked over their site and didn't see anything there.
Perhaps a freeware with a big community that has tons of plugins... please?
