Yes, but Amnesty is an add-on to dashboard while Konfabulator is a stand alon app. I think it's at least $10 too high. I wish they would've kept it free.

Actually, isn't Amnesty a stand-alone application that uses the same widgets used by dashboard.

But this doesn't offer anymore Widgets. If you have Panther it is one thing to have Tiger Widgets, but with Tiger Konfabulator will give you twice as many Widgets (at least for now).

I emailed them and they said there will be a, free, lite version coming in August. I told them I liked it but didn't think it was worth $19.95.

Oh trust me. They will make quite a bit of money off of it. That is until Leopard comes out and has a better solution that beats this solution and makes this program totally worthless.

I really hope it doesn't take until Leopard for Apple to include the option to place the widgets on the desktop. Is there a way to email Apple with suggestions for apps?
