Google Desktop Will Be Discontinued

Today, as you heard or not. The Google Desktop will be not supported anymore.
It's hard for me, that Google Desktop will be discontinued. I have build great Google Gadgets and help most users.
As of September 14, Google Desktop will no longer be available for download, and existing installations will not be updated to include new features or fixes. 
This is now the current top 5 of the most popular Stefan Google Gadgets:
  1. Fast Shutdown
  2. Power Off
  3. Windows Dock
  4. Office
  5. System Manager

But what with my Google Desktop Gadgets (.gg)?
All my Google Gadgets are still available on the Google code project Stefan vd.
Also the Google Desktop software and SDK is on that website.

You can still use my Google Gadget and if you got question go to my Support page.

Will the Gadget be converted?
Most gadget are already converted to a other platform. Example like the "Date Today" Chrome Extension.
But the other gadget can not be converted. Because it use a other framework (API) and that can not be used in example a iGoogle Gadget.
