    Re: Windows Vista Sidebar

    For me, the shine wore off of those, as I hardly ever access my desktop anyway.

    I see that in Windows 7, they won't be restricted to a sidebar. I still probably won't use it. We'll see.

    I have a 28" monitor so I just lock the sidebar so that it's always on top.

    Re: Windows Vista Sidebar

    I've converted all my machines to the release version of Win7. The sidebar is gone by default and I haven't bothered to do anything with gadgets. I used to use it in Vista. I liked the Accuweather one.

    Re: Windows Vista Sidebar

    I got rid of the side bar; too much clutter.

    It was one of the first things I got rid of.

    Not a fan of the clutter that the sidebar brought. Had the calendar on it for about three days, then removed it.

    Don't use it.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”
