I can't find that in my gadget library in Windows 7... or are you using Vista? Either way, there really should be a way to pin this to the front and change the font at least. Also, I hope they include this in Windows 7 because if I can pin it to the top then that would be really helpful.

Oh I found it. Yeah, from what I can see, this program could use some work.

in vista, if you had a touch screen computer you could write on the sticky notes, can you do the same in 7? if not, then its huge step back microsoft
