Yeah. I think so too, but I'd like to include one good desklet for the most important functions. Meaning one for CPU/HDD, one for weather, one good working clock implementation, one quote desklet and so forth. Hopefully so that the desklets in the package are enough for people to get really interested to find more.

I'd rather include the new desklets shell Lauri has been working on. People
could easily download any desklets they like. AFAIK yahoo is doing it that

That would be very sensible. Unfortunately the Desklet control and the desklet itself still need some work. The rendering speed of 0.35 is a bit too little for the desklet, but that problem should disappear with 0.40. The desklet basically works for installation and IIRC it also handles control dependencies. It also loads the available desklets, controls and news from the site.

I'm very limited with my time right now and I have the following priorities:

1) site (as I'm the only one with access to it)
2) 0.40 core
3) desklet control

I won't have time for 2 and 3 before autumn. I'd be very pleased to help people on both if they are willing to contribute.

And the whole idea of having a desklet control for installation is that we can do alternate displays for installation! So let you imagination fly! What should the future of desklet installation be like?!
