Google Desktop Side Bar Replacement

So Google Desktop has been discontinued for a while, and while I was able to rescue some gadgets after a reinstall I have a feeling that I need a replacement.

I saw this
thread, but Konfabulator also seems to bed discontinued as well (plus I'm not sure it's exactly what I need).
The main thing I'm looking for is a sidebar that is always on screen
, as opposed to on the desktop. Multi-monitor support/sending would be a plus, but by no means a requirement.
Widgets I need are:
Some sort of notepad
Widgets I'd like are:
quick calc (the kind where you just type your calculations in)
launching arbitrary programs from icons (compact)
Features I don't need that GD had:
any sort of search or indexing
Anyone have recommendations?
