OS X Dashboard: can it be revived, or is it destined to be a ghost town?
“The first thing I do when I buy a new Mac is ‘$ killall Dock’ to stop the resource sucking widgets,” Enso Cloud tweeted at me last week. “Does anyone actually use Dashboard widgets?” Chris MacDonald said.
“No to widgets. I disable them on all Macs I work on. They’re quite stagnant and useless with an iOS device nearby,” Ken Fager added. Do you still use the OS X Dashboard? It turns out that a good number of Mac users don’t—or at least those who follow Ars (and me) on Twitter.
