http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm looking for something like Google Gadgets, gDesklets, Screenlets, which isn't ancient and is still being updated etc. Maybe the time for this has simply passed, but I find those little gadgets extremely handy and Screenlets seems just so outdated, let alone gDesklets, with only a hand full of gadgets, or Google Gadgets, which hasn't been updated in over 4 years. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. :D (Hardware)
