Google Desktop

I have been playing around with resurrecting a surplus pc that I got from a school auction and using some old parts created my franken-pc. I loaded XP on it and found a pretty cool app by google again that puts a 'sidebar' on your desktop that makes it look similar to windows Vista. Here is a screen shot of my vista desktop and notice the sidebar with the clock and stuff on it on the right.

it is pretty cool and you can add different gadgets and customize it --- my main favorites would be the analog clock and weather gadget.

Pretty cool! I'm still on XP. Can't do any more upgrades to get Vista running on this PC. It's just not compatible. I've got a licensed copy of Vista, just no PC robust enough to install it on.
