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?
