Several upgrades ago Dashboard started affecting my system performance so I slowly weened myself off of the few widgets I still used. And in speaking with several Mac friends then it seems to be a very unpopular feature with both users and developers. So I was surprised to see it gained such a prominent position in Lions Mission Control. While I liked Dashboard in the past, it became a nuisance in Lion because I end up swiping to it accidentally all the time. And it got me thinking, instead of outdated widgets, why not update dashboard to be iOS Apps? Weather, Stocks, Calculator, Sports etc all have superior iOS Apps so if Apple really wants to blur the line between desktop and mobile OS's then why not actually give us some of those useful mobile Apps? I bet it would clear up a lot of the UI questions if they did that.
