column. Widgets won't end up being a cluttered mess, but instead are
organized and easy to find. Widgets offer:
- Drag and Drop.
- Organization for PDAs and desktop
computers, using columns, that make it easy to read even on the smallest
screen (cell phones and other mobile devices)
- Minimize a widget you
don't need, but don't want to delete.
- Share a widget with other
users using a Workspace

functionality included. It transparently integrates itself into many
