Hi John, jmca> OS X provides pop up user utilities called widgets which reside in a jmca> "dashboard" (see jmca> Yahoo! have recently released a similar widget system for both Windows and jmca> OS X (see jmca> It would be fairly trivial to write a similar tool in rebol... jmca> What does everyone think to this idea? RT is aware of this toolkit, and others like it, along with the value such a toolkit might bring to REBOL. The Yahoo widget tool used to be called Konfabulator--which I think started the trend that Apple integrated into OSX. Konfabulator was recently acquired by Yahoo. I'm anxious to see how many others think this would be a good thing for REBOL. It will take some work on RT's part, so it needs to be prioritized; which means we need to know how important it is to people. -- Gregg
