    Good question.   There used to be "Gadgets" for both MSDN and TechNet.   I don't remember where I got them.  FWIW I'm in W7 now and tried using my Gadgets "Get more gadgets online" button to see if they were there.  Here's where that led:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/personalize/gadgets


    So, if anyone ports the functionality available in those two tools, looks like now we will have to trust the Store instead of the Gadget Gallery?    ;  }

     
    Otherwise in W8 (but AFAIK, not Surface) you can use an  NNTP bridge to read forums posts in your favorite newsreader (or WLMail if you don't have one.)   Using a bridge can make it easier to read stuff here but FWIW for posting I always use a browser.

     

    FYI
