Which KDE Plasmoids do you use?

Just curious. Which KDE Plasmoids do you have installed on your Desktop and Panel -- the ones that you regard as important for your desktop experience?

Here are mine (I've excluded the icons that I have on my Desktop and Panel, I'm just listing the Plasmoids):

- Notes
- Digital Clock x 2
- Analogue Clock
- Comic Strip (showing xkcd)
- yaWP (simply the best weather widget there is)

- Lancelot Launcher (instead of Kickoff)
- Pager
- Show Desktop
- Dictionary
- Smooth Tasks (thank you, ReemZ!)
- System Tray
- Digital Clock
- Wastebin

(I only have four clocks on screen because I travel all the time, otherwise I'd just have a Digital Clock widget on the Panel and perhaps an Analogue Clock widget on the Desktop.)

So... which Plasmoids do you use?

I have a couple of different plasmoids in every virtual desktop but the only two I actually use are system load viewer in my panel and qualculate in my desktop.

Like DHalens, I've got different plasmoids for each v. desktop, but here they're:


- Desktop 1:
--- Analog Clock (+ some icons, but that doesn't count)
-Desktop 2:
--- Folder view
--- Now playing (Think this is the name, in Spanish it's: "Ahora suena").
- Desktop 3:
--- Folder view
--- Notes
- Desktop 4:
--- Folder view (this one more like a photo mosaic)

- Kickoff
- Pager
- Show Desktop
- Task Manager
- System Tray
- Digital Clock

In the first panel:

In dashboard:

None, I have kickoff, quicklaunch task manager(with rows forced to two KDE 3.5 style), systray and digital clock on the menu bar, no desktop widgets or icons.

Nice and clean.
