I turned off Dashboard as well, Meteorologist works fine for weather info and doesn't cause a major slowdown. I prefer stuff that I can run to get info, then close if I want to (or leave running, most non-widget stuff isn't that bad).

Seems to me, you can run programs to do most of the stuff widgets might do, and use Expose' to look at them if you want, or look at the menu bar in things like Meteorologist. Just my 2 cents worth :)
