Just saw in news that Microsoft decided to remove Windows Gadget support from Vista and 7. This are the widgets that you see on the desktop after installation. Called as Sidebar there were number of different things you can insert in it. Like a Weather app, or Clock. To some extent this will reduce the ram usage and make Windows more comfortable to use.
It looks Microsoft is bit serious about Windows performance and trying to improve the same in more better. But is this is going to put any better impressions on Windows upcoming system.
