Windows 7 desktop gadget

n00b post, so bear with me... did searches and checked sticky threads without finding anything though.


So. Is there a desktop "gadget" that can be used on Windows 7 64-bit? I would much prefer to have a very streamlined UI for online contacts, and the application window just gets too big IMHO. I found "SkypeGadget", but that's 32-bit only


Is Skype working on something like this, or is it something that is strictly a community effort?

Re: Windows 7 desktop gadget

there is no Skype 'gadget' (32-bit or 64-bit) that is available for Windows from Skype, and there have been no announcements
