The Amazon Art widget is fairly useful while listening to your iTunes songs.

It's better to keep those widgits at a minimum as they can chew up sys cpu. I just use the basics, Unit Converter, Stickies, World Clocks.

Did you know, however, that if you hit your F12 key and then click on a Widget and move it from side to side while hitting F12 again, that the widget then is moved to your desktop.....to put it back just follow the directions in reverse. :headphone

I think that this comes down to what you are interested in! Personally, I have a weather widget, a UPS/FedEx tracking widget, an iTunes widget, a stock market widget, iStat Pro (a system monitor - nobody should be without that one), a currency conversion widget, a time widget, a calendar widget, a chimes widget, and finally, a completely useless one that just puts up various Apple logos through the years - it is just simple fun. It all really depends on "what floats your boat".

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
