Of course, I had to try to see how hard it would be to do the same thing in F3. Here's the F3 version of the Calculator widget:
Unfortunately, it's currently impossible to create transparent windows in Java on non-MacOS platforms, so in those cases you won't see the dropshadow and rounded corners.
It only took a few minutes to write the visual elements in F3 (I just used F3Pad). And about another hour to add the behavior (I borrowed the design of the non-visual part of the calculator from an ancient Java applet I found on the net).
