Either my glasses need another cleaning or the lines keep blurring between cloud, desktop and browser. My latest bout with myopia comes from the new Gmail gadget supported on Google Desktop for Windows. All of the Gmail goodness is in there: message starring, keyboard shortcuts and contact auto-completion. There are plenty of Gmail gadgets for Microsoft Windows Vista, so this might be more appealing to Windows XP users.
Do we have any Google Desktop for Windows users out there? After a brief stint with Google Desktop, I uninstalled it as I was on a "lean and mean" kick and wanted to minimize system resources at the time.
