If Konfabulator can't take the thought of someone else taking their idea, business is not the right game for them.
How many video editing software packages are there? Final Cut, Adobe Premiere, Avid Xpress, iMovie, etc. etc. One of these companies must of got the idea for a video editing package from another company. Why aren't you complaining to them?
As far as I can see, the only similarity between Konfabulator and Dashboard is the idea of "mini-applications". How the programs work are actually very different (http://daringfireball.net/2004/06/dashboard_vs_konfabulator), so now Konfabulator has some competition, and motivation to create an even better product. So why are we, the customers, complaining, when 2 companies are now fighting to make the best product for us?
