KDE 4 to Support Apple Dashboard Widgets
The start of something bigger?While I'm not a big fan of Dashboard because it's a completely separate environment from the traditional Mac desktop, this is actually pretty interesting. Hopefully, Apple will both allow it to happen and open up Dashboard widgets so that they can run at any time on the standard desktop.

It's official; Zack Rusin, a lead developer of KDE, has stated in his journal that the upcoming KDE 4 will be able to run and display Dashboard widgets much in the same way that Mac OS X 10.4 can. He writes:
CoreGraphics supports one thing that I need to add to Qt Arthur and that is a nice support for shadows. It's one of the extensions of the Canvas element from Safari that we won't support for now. I know how I want to do it in Qt, now it's just a matter of sitting down and doing it. This plus seperate transformations on fills and strokes which I had planned on doing anyway.
