Konfabulator moves over to Windows

By Derek Sooman on
Apple announced back in June that it would offer a feature called Dashboard as part of its next version of Mac OS X. This new feature offers easy access to a variety of small applications called widgets - mall graphical applications that sit on the desktop and offer stock quotes, weather information, that sort of thing.

Arlo Rose, as master developer who once worked at Apple and now heads up a small company called Pixoria, has developed an application called Konfabulator for Mac OS X, which is remarkably similar to Dashboard in many ways. Konfabulator even uses the term widgets in the same context. When Apple announced its plans for Dashboard, Rose accused Apple of being a copycat, which was of course denied. Now, Arlo Rose has moved his Konfabulator over to Windows. Rose has said the new version will be available Monday.
