Konfabulator for Windows, finally

In: Fun|Neat Stuff

15 Nov 2004

Konfabulator has finally been ported to Windows! Now I can at least get to experience the neat little app that made such news in blogs all over some months ago. (Note to reader: I’m refraining from word-butchery, so where “blogosphere” may be more appropriate in this case, I’m not going to be tempted into using it.)

Looks nice doesn’t it?

Konfabulator widgets on my desktop

I’m not even sure I need the weather widget, but the What To Do, iTunes remote, and RSS feed aggregator looks to be useful.

Mac users get all the cool-looking, drool-worthy stuff (though I’ve seen a mean KDE setup), and also some of the coolest technology.

Via coresite.org.

Desktop widgets (or whatever you’d like to call them) are one of those things that are insanely cool the first time you use them and then just become not-quite-so-useful memory/desktop hogs as time goes by.

Still, I can see why the windows crowd is getting excited ;)

Konfabulator for Windows
Konfabulator has finally been ported to Windows. A killer-app if you go by the reviews from OS X users earlier this year. Now I’m off to try it out. (From: Redemption)…

there have been similar apps on windows for a very long time:
desktopx (payware and not really good, but it’s 4 years old, based on the great vde)
kapsules (free, newer and better, needs .net framework, kapsules.shellscape.org)
avedesk (free, havent tried it yet)
dotwidget (free and opensource, made in vb6 by k23productions.com, but works too good to be made in visualbasic)
phatbits (hasnt been released yet, but seems the most complete of all)

If you don’t mind my asking, how did you manage to get it to work on a limited user account (I am assuming you are running a Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 series OS).

It only seems to want to work on the Admin Account on my PC and I really don’t want to uninstall and install under my profile (bypassing the “Program Files” Folder).
