Google Gadgets on Your Linux Desktop

The team behind the Google Desktop for Linux
project is proud to present the first open source implementation of the Google Gadgets on the Linux desktop. The Google Gadgets for Linux project will provide a platform that will allows the use of the popular and wonderful Google gadgets (widgets) on any Linux desktop. The project is compatible with gadgets written for Google Desktop for Windows and the Universal Gadgets from iGoogle.

We, here at the Softpedia Labs, compiled and installed this first release of the Google Gadgets for Linux package on an Ubuntu 8.04 LTS machine and we were really impressed with them. The installation will provide a client for both GTK and QT platforms or, in other words, both GNOME and KDE users can enjoy the Google Gadgets on their desktops.

You can see the How to install and Download from Softpedia.
