Kill Dashboard App - for OSX. Neatly disables this total waste of Ram.

Rate this Entry
A friend of mine posted a really interesting comment on Buzz today - well, interesting for us mac users.
It was that his dashboard was eating ram and he had made an app to disable it. The Mac Dashboard is a collection of widgets that interact with the web, mini web apps - or, from my perspective, Windows Live Desktop - something I have also always hated with a passion. - so weather, search, feeds, etc).

A few links were posted to other, fiddly solutions involving hacking the codebase.

I checked them out but they were not simple things I could just forget about - I'd need to update each time I installed a new version of OSX etc....

So, it was with great pleasure that I just logged on and saw that in response to peoples interest, he'd released the app he made

He're an embed of the release on his blog. Superb work. I shall be installing this on every mac I can get my hands on. Note to apple.....when we want it, we'll run it !

    Definitely going to try this on the wife's old PPC Macbook Pro, it's getting so old and sloooooooow these days.

    Thanks for the share.
