It's kind of odd to me that they've added a full blown app for sticky notes and removed the sticky notes gadget. It seems like the later would be more appropriate for such a thing.
What can the new Sticky Notes app do that the old gadget couldn't?
I too liked the gadget much better. Not only does the sticky notes application add an icon I don't need to my taskbar, but if I Show Desktop, it's gone. I thought the whole point was
that you could put gadgets on the desktop so that you could use Aero Peek and cast a quick glance at them?
I'm definitely saving the sticky notes gadget from vista. If Windows 7/IE8 doesn't break it, of course.
