I noticed that Apple's new operating system features widgets that are part of their new dashboard.

Dashboard is home to widgets: mini-applications that let you perform common tasks and provide you with fast access to information. With a single click, Dashboard appears, complete with widgets that bring you a world of information real-time weather, stock tickers, flight information and more instantly. Dashboard disappears just as easily, so you can get back to what you were doing.

I currently use Weather Pulse which has a desklet (that pretty much does the same thing).
Are there other (free and safe) desklets (widgets...or what ever the real name for these programs are) available for the PC?
