they do have gadgets for cpu and dual core and even memory
but I would like a gadget that lets you browse all the devices on the network and see a picture(icon) of the servers and printers and nas and other network share devices plus what ports are used on the router/hub/switch

How about
- a better looking weather gadget hehe :D

- media player song/album track information that's currently playing, etc
(For some reasons those gadgets listed on the website (the one that you go to from the sidebar) doesn't work on me - just blank screens..)
- Alarm reminders->maybe a clock that shakes and rings when a reminder occurs :)

The Gadgets that I would love to see:

1.The original Weather gadget (Not the new one which I dislike)

2. A Dictionary Gadget

3. Google search Gadget

4. WMP gadget (The way it looks when it's in Taskbar mode)

5. Rhapsody Gadget :)

6. Radar/Satellite gadget that updates automatically

7. News gadget (That pops up on your desktop displaying the latest news such as what they have in google desktop)

8.Slideshow viewer (but with more options such as adding different frames around it)

9.Msn Email Gadget (Which pops up on your desktop displaying every time there's new Email or can popup once a day showing you new messages)

Different skins for each gadget would be great once they start to get boring.

Gadgets that I'd like to see back:

1. Recycle Bin Gaget (I would like an option With choices for different sizes)

2. Quick Launcher

3. Calculator

4. The original Weather Gadget

one Windows Live gadget that needs to be made is for the eBay watchlist. and I wouldnt mind if this was made as a Sidebar gadget either since that is something you want to watch if you are bidding (it can count down the time independent of refreshing data, too)

i read a comment from someone on the Vista team that there would be a WMP gadget put in before release.

i wish they didn't take out the calculator gadget, i think one of the nice things about gadgets is that they can just function as sort of mini apps even apart from the sidebar and just function in stay on top mode.

one thing i hate about the slideshow gadget is if the pictures arent a certain dimension it letterboxes them. clipping them would even be preferable to me.

one really bad thing about the notes gadget, is that while you can drag text in, you cant drag text out.

---which brings me to an important suggestion:

a CLIPBOARD/CLIPBOOK/SCRAPBOOK/SCRATCHPAD GADGET

(windows live search has a scratchpad so maybe they want to keep that name)

What about a widget(gadget? :p) where you can make it refresh a part of a site and make that a widget itself- like(ok, exactly like) the one shown on OSX.
