    is there anyway to have the close widget animation within the dashboard work with regular app windows outside the dashboard?

    Does anyone else think that would be cool?

    meh.

    I think that actually would get sort of annoying. You're normally closing regular application windows much more than Dashboard windows, and having to see it all suck into a little box all the time would get obtrusive.

    Widgets are a gimmick and can afford to be resource-intensive but I think it'd be a strain on the system for all apps to close this way. :eek:

    It would still be better than having the 'ripple effect' every time you opened a new app. Now that would be a resource hog :).

    Yeah, I want to be able to drag minimize windows out of the Dock and plop them down like when you put a new widget on the Dashboard.:D
