    Windows 10 & 8.1 64-bit, Kubuntu


    I was glad to get gadgets back in Windows 8.

    Do these still work in Windows 8.1 Preview?

    Win 8, (VM win7, XP, Vista)


    I am using 8GadgetPack with no problems in both win 8 and 8.1. . .being a Mac user I have always liked the idea of gadgets or widgets. They just add the right touch to an OS. . .

    Interesting - it says it doesn't work in 8.1.

    Perhaps you did an upgrade to 8.1?
