You know, i was really excited about dashboard when i upgraded, but  
discovered that i never had a need to use it.  The only thing i ever  
used was the IMDB widget, but because dashboard is such a memory hog,  
it was actually faster just to do cmd-T, cmd-7 (since it's my seventh  
toolbar shortcut).  Then i discovered that my machine was always  
running hot because the Asteroids widget that i'd found and tried out  
on a lark was *always* *running*.  I disabled dashboard with a  
freeware app within the next two weeks, and haven't used it in, oh, a  
year?  In fact, i immediately remapped the dashboard key to one of  
the exposé keys, because exposé is incredibly useful.

In retrospect, who thought that dashboard was a good feature?  Much  
less a selling point?  And isn't mickeysoft trying to copy it?
