Konfabulator, Samurize, Dashboard and Active Desktop

Now that the heated debates about Konfabulator vs. Dashboard has become history, I’ve asked myself a very basic question: considering that ActiveDesktop on my Windows machine is rendered by MSIE (security risks notwithstanding), should it not be possible to create a webpage full of widgets without any help from Samurize? I am not looking for anything fancy: a plain calendar, a calculator, a clock, maybe a weather report.

Here’s a shot of what I was able to put together relatively easily — most of the stuf is just a copy/paste from various sites JavaScript. It is not too pretty — but that’s largely CSS issue that I have not spent much time refining.
