Yahoo bought them out, even though Tiger had widgets built in, konfabulator was still better and I have had it running on my computer both windows and mac for quite some time. If you don't know what konfabulator is, you should.

Either way, good news for users.
According to Konfabulator, Apple stole their Idea hense the windows release. In reality, Apple did steal Konfabulators idea. It's a prime example of Apple pointing the finger at MS for stealing ideas then doing the same thing on what I consider a much more grand level. If you look at Konfabulator, which existed long before Tiger, it's an obvious rip. Personally I think Konfabulator looks, acts, and runs better then the Tiger Widgets.
Oh well, in the end I'm sure it worked out for all parties involved with the exception of Apple. Thats what they get for ripping though...
They might have used someone elses idea, but I don't believe they took customers away. People who used and loved Konfabulator stayed with them ... the only thing Tiger's Widgets did was introduce a new way for non-technical people to get information.
