"Quite good!"

May 08, 2006  |  By fonsolo

Pros

Beautiful and useful... what you expect it to be.

Cons

Nothing so far, not too much memory usage (as it's been said...)

"I like Google desk-thing whatever-its-called better"

March 29, 2006  |  By jwarner191

 |  Version: Desktop Sidebar 1.04.75

Pros

the analog clock is the nicest that I have seen; the overall look is great

Cons

I like the Google desktop sidebar thing better, especially because it has a desktop search built in; Google seems easier to use.

"Awesome Program"

March 03, 2006  |  By bdh734

 |  Version: Desktop Sidebar 1.04.75

Pros

Everything is right there for you to open without having to look for. Well designed and easy to use. A little hint: once you download, go to the plug-ins and get some like the IP viewer, it shows you IP address and will enable you to ping yourself. This way you can drive Norton Internet Security crazy, you are attacking yourself!

Cons

It want's memory. It will eat it up. This will put your system at a crawl if you don't have alot of memory to spare.

"Barely a calendar"

February 27, 2006  |  By thulemanden

 |  Version: Desktop Sidebar 1.04.75

Pros

Doesn't dock by default

Cons

The calendar has to be added. Docing dynamically in the right sidebar has to be initiated by using the HIDE item (right click first). After restaring the calendar doesn't work.

"Its great!!"

January 30, 2006  |  By vig04_117

 |  Version: Desktop Sidebar 1.04.75

Pros

Got a good analog clock, the mail checker and the search is very handy. The image slide show is very nice. It works in all!

Cons

Its a bit of resource hog..and the media player doesnt work well..I would reqest pannels for messengers like Trillian which is used widely.

"Everything you can think of in a compact good-looking pack."

December 25, 2005  |  By GoMa1234

 |  Version: Desktop Sidebar 1.04.75

Pros

Includes many "panels" which show information varying from your IP address to your emails/appointments to news to anything else you can possibly think of, all in an always visible place (although you can set it to auto-hide in order to conserve screen space). If a panel you want does not yet exist on the site, you can request it in the active community forums, where panel developers will see it and try to implement your idea.

Desktop Sidebar supports skinning, which means you can change the look of the app to suit your needs and compose a beautiful desktop. A nice collection of skins made by the community can be found on the site, but if none suit your needs, the included Skin Editor will help you make your own skin or tweak existing ones to your liking.

Additionally, I am a programmer. Developing panels for Desktop Sidebar is pretty easy, and it also supports creating panels using script-languages.
