Dashboard is Apple’s desktop widget feature due in Mac OS X Tiger. Developing Dashboard Widgets shows how wonderfully simple (for any competent web developer) creating widgets is, but unfortunately I’d need $500 and a spare Mac to start playing around with them now.
Konfabulator is already freely available and gaining new fans amongst Windows users, so perhaps developing widgets for it is also the best way to prepare for Dashboard? I think I’ll do a bit more research…
