good, so now you have 2 widget engines running at the same time, eating up more resources and making things "dirtier." one engine runs natively under your OS, is utilized to run transparently in the background and optimized for minimal memory and bandwidth consumption and taking advantage of Tiger's core services such as core image and quartz. the other, yahoo, engine doesn't do any of that, but also puts a lot of weight on the system, is not natively supported, etc, etc. the main thing is though that you have a BMW clock on your desktop whenever you want. that's a good one!
