I was using the standard once in Vista, but that one is pretty slick. Thanks for the link, Sazar. :)

Is the sidebar transparency thing a Windows 7 thing, only?

Right click on any gadget and choose your opacity.

An FYI guys :)

If you are using this on an HTPC (like I am on my other system) and you are using windows 7 or vista and have changed the font/size settings, the gadgets options will NOT show correctly unless you scale the font size back to normal.

You can adjust at that point and then restore your font's to whatever size you want (Windows 7 does a far better job of scaling than Vista btw) and you're all set.

Just in case some people have problems with their weather gadgets :D
