Lots of applications and utilities have trried to clone Wwindows Vista’s sidebar, but haven’t been able to come up with something up to the mark. All of them had limited number of gadgets (some didn’t have any), and used a lot of system resources.

Joshoon from DeviantArt have managed to port the real Windows Sidebar (originally found in Windows Vista) to Windows XP using Alky For Applications. Alky makes makes it possible to run Vista apps on Windows XP.

This package contains three apps that you will have to install.

  1. Alky for Applications
  2. Windows Sidebar
  3. Gadgets Gallery

Install them in the order mentioned above, and you will have the Windows Sidebar from Vista running on your Windows XP in no time!
