    I got Leopard and I love it. The thing I like about Vista is you can get post it notes on your desktop. I know you can do it with dashboard in OS X but I never open dashboard. Is there a way I can get post it notes on my regular OS X desktop?

    you know you can bring what's on your dashboard on to your desktop...just a little terminal command and you can drag anything out of dashboard...

    then grab a widget, hold on to it, exit dashboard and then drop it on your desktop.

    don't forget to do a killall to restart your finder for that to work after you do the terminal command.
