Reading David Hyatt's Surfin' Safari blog, and how unstable the Dashboard specifications are at this point. Does anyone believe that widgets created in the +/- 10 month period will be broken when Tiger has it's general release?

I would say that many gadgets will still function, some will have minor issues, and some will require quite a bit of effort to correct, but that shouldn't discourage current developers from creating gadgets.

When Tiger is released, they will already have their ideas and graphics created, most of their code will still function fine, and they may have to tweak things a little to adjust to new changes. This would be a much quicker process then starting from scratch once Tiger is released.

Tiger was released in this developers preview for developers to start work on things ready for Tiger. I don't doubt there will be changes when the public release is seeded, but there can't be so many as to break everything, or why bother releasing a build for developers?
