Get Windows 7 Like Gadgets for Ubuntu,Mint

Ever thought that are there any gadgets / widgets like Windows 7 for Linux Mint or Ubuntu so the answer is
 yes .
Gadgets are called Screenlets not Google gadgets  .I prefer Screenlets as they are for linux primarily also they are written in python

Screenlets are small owner-drawn applications (written in Python) that can be described as "the virtual representation of things lying/standing around on your desk". Sticknotes, clocks, rulers, ... the possibilities are endless.
The goal of the Screenlets base-classes is to simplify the creation of fully themeable mini-apps that each solve basic desktop-work-related needs and generally improve the usability and eye-candy of the modern composited Linux-desktop.
