konfabulator now free

konfabulator lets you add little fun attractive objects to your desktop (clocks, weather tools, games, etc.)

http://www.konfabulator.com/

"Let's just get this out of the way... Konfabulator is now free. Yup. If you download version 2.1 you know what you'll never ever see? That's right a registration reminder. Fear not, there's nothing sneaky in there, no spyware, no ads, nothing that's keeping track of information and sending it to us... it's pure, uncut Konfabulator goodness. "

Yahoo bought it out and made it free.

Wow, that's good news. Wonder why Yahoo did that? They did essentially the same thing with Yahoo Desktop Search when the licensed the X1 engine. Incredible.

Now, we can currently hear the cries of all those people who've recently purchased Konfabulator. Fear not, people, for you will be given the gift of a refund if you purchased Konfabulator 2.0 or later. Revel in the glory of it.

Sarcasm aside, this is great of them.  I've gotten screwed several times in the past after paying for software that turned freeware, and I'm quite certain I was never offered a refund!
