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.

To install Screenlets in Ubuntu or Linux Mint..

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:screenlets/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install screenlets

To install  all in one pack of screenlets

sudo apt-get install screenlets-pack-all

Here is a ScreenShot
