Really nice work.

But in the last picture, the size and positioning of the tiles is off. They are covering almost the whole of the screen. They should be more like this:

Seems like you really went all out on this a definitely kudos to that. (Y) However I have to ask: Why go through all the trouble if Windows already has a platform for widgets/gadgets beyond cloning the Mac OS X look-'n'-feel?

Excellent program, thank you very much for sharing your hard work.
The low memory footprint is exceptionally good.

While I do not use widgets, I shall certainly keep an eye on this software and hope that a fully-featured Dock (I currently use RocketDock) is developed.

Once again, excellent work, congrats!

Thanks.
Just because I like the Mac OS X Dashboard User Experience ,and This is my hobby :)

In fact, the reason I developed it is dissatisfaction with the efficiency of Rainmeter, I want a Visual Skin Editor.
XWidget is designed to replace the Rainmeter.

I add a dashboard weather widget.

Double-click it to collapse or expand.
Click the "i" button to the bottom-right corner to 3D Flip to the back to input city name.

Downright Awesome.
However, I have one complaint.
The 'cross\close' sign on the top left ruins the beauty of the whole widget.
Can you make it a hover-over appear

Not a big fan of the whole widget concept, but i must admit that when great work is done there that should be acknowledged. Great work dude, seems you really worked hard on that piece of code.
