10.4: Open the Dashboard bar via keyboard shortcut

Blimey, how often do you guys change your widget-set? Opening the bar of available widgets shouldn't be something you do so often that it needs a keyboard shortcut.

10.4: Open the Dashboard bar via keyboard shortcut
Authored by: robg on May 11, '05 12:14:18PM

Ummmm ... how would one open a widget that's currently closed without using the widget bar? I don't leave every widget open; mostly, I leave them closed (the ones that I leave open are actually dragged to the desktop for always-there access). So I use the widget bar quite a bit...

Widgets take a non-trivial quantity of resources to keep running (between 18 and 30 MB of physical RAM each, according to top), so I like to only keep the ones I use frequently open, in order to avoid unnecessary swapping under higher memory usage conditions, and open others when I actually need them.
