    Anything like Dashboard???
    I've been doing some reading about upcoming Tiger, and was curious if there is anything available now that is like the Dashboard feature.

    Is Dashboard exclusive to Tiger? I really think it's a pretty cool feature; kind of like when I first figured out how Expose worked!! Just little things that this Window's user finds cool :mac:

    thanks

    Konfabulator gives me problems on my iBook, but it works fine on my iMac G5. If you ever are going to do some computer intensive work on your computer, I recommend to exit out of Konfabulator. Downside, it is not free.

    If you type in Konfabulator in search on the forums, you'll find a lot of members complaining about how it consumes system resources. Your iBook will run fine with it, but if you ever run into problems, Konf. might be the culprit.
