Yahoo! acquires Konfabulator

Dave Winer at Scripting News points to MacWorld: “Yahoo on Monday will announce the acquisition of Konfabulator, a Macintosh and Windows application that allows users to run mini files known as Widgets on their desktop — the same model used by Apple for its Dashboard application.”

Platform-agnostic applets that run on every desktop could be yet another challenge to proprietary OS vendors like Apple, Microsoft and Sun, along with web-based applications.
