Comment on "ADC Premier Membership Discount"
by Reg — Apr 02
No question at all that Dashboard is far better as a system level, ubiquitous app on all Macs, rather than a limited 3rd party one. And that it's a direct descendant of Desktop Accessories (or "desk ornaments" as Tribble original conceived circa 1980) which had lived on the Mac from System 1.0 through Mac OS 9.2.

(Perhaps I'd argue that Apple maybe should have done a "CoverFlow" on Konfabulator: a buyout would have been trivial for Apple, would have kept the community on good terms, and it was effectively what Yahoo! ended up doing for the developers anyway.)

Just making the point that perhaps we don't want Apple to get too involved in looking at our ideas and making them into full-blown apps!
