I am planning to start development of a windows 7 gadget for stack exchange.Specifically stack overflow.

I would like some guidance, on where to get good designs, HCI patterns, etc for the same.

Also, a vote, which tells me , how good/bad the idea would be a nice way to judge, if the work I put in would be worth it.


PS:I was trying to put a windows-7-gadgets tag, but it didnt workIf someone could remove that restriction on me, I would be glad.

  • I don't know how anyone could vote for "Windows 7 gadget" without having any idea what it would do. Commented Jan 18, 2011 at 17:04
  • On meta, several people are wishing for a "global inbox" and a "reputation dropdown" gadget. Commented Jun 5, 2011 at 14:49
  • I personally think stack-exchange/overflow/app gadget would be great. They have some out, none with the desired functionality though.
