    I don't understand why Apple don't let developers build Widgets for Dashboard, I see that you can buy some widgets for Notification Center but not for Dashboard.

    A lot of developers would be interested in building new Widgets for Dashboard because some of them will sell them. Other will offer them for free but by letting developers build widgets for Dashboard people would have a lot of options to choose.

    Here is the store for Notification Center Widgets in Yosemite if you did not know about this.

    Open Dashboard, hit the + button in lower left, then select More Widgets to find widgets for Dashboard.

    And there are 3rd party widgets to purchase.

    Because Dashboard (Widgets) are actual death and i think Apple will disable Dashboard in OS X 10.11

    They added for the first time (in Yosemite) an option to disable Dashboard.
