    Seems Dashboard is to be dropped from MacOS Catalina.... What do ya'll think?

    Disappointing, I reckon. I use it frequently to

    - Check exchange rates
    - Convert weights and measures
    - Check the time in different parts of the world
    - Check computer status in iStats
    - Listen to BBC radio stations on-line
    - Check weather forecast for several days ahead
    - Put the computer to sleep after I turn in with iTunes or radio playing.
    - And more.

    Checked out using Notifications as an alternative, but found it lacking...... Could live without Dashboard if the functionality could be found in Notifications or elsewhere that is easily accessed.

    I use it, but I use it less and less, and could live without it no problem i think.

    I guess not enough people use that. Personally I don’t.

    My desktop, an early 2009 Mac mini will go to its grave with El Capitan. I use Dashboard on it almost every day, sometimes multiple times.

    My use pattern for the MacBook Air I bought last year is quite different. It is running Mojave. I mainly use it for work and I'll concede that I seldom use Dashboard on the Air.

    In short, Dashboard's usefulness varies with situation, but it certainly remains relevant and useful for a good few folks
