Stickies: replacement for Sticky Note

I believe a lot of Windows 7 (and Windows Vista) users have used Sticky Note gadget at least once. For those that like to use it or depend on it very often, the sad news is the later version of Windows 7 does not include Sticky Note. This happen to me as well. My first Win7 OS does has Sticky Note, and it did save some tree from some forest on this Earth. However when I got my new laptop, it is a more matured Win7, but Sticky Note disappear from the gadgets. Did Microsoft want to destroy more tree? I don't know.

Anyway, I found this freeware, or free apps which more people call it that way on every single software (except OS). This apps is Stickies.

Not only this Stickies does the same thing that the Sticky Note does, but better [my comment in square bracket]:
1. Stickies appearance can be customized for fonts, colors. Buttons may be changed, and styles can be saved [reduce boredom]

2. Stickies can store text or images [yea, don't think original Sticky Note can store picture]

3. Stickies can snap to each other and to the sides of the screen to keep them neatly lined up [tidiness?]

4. Stickies can be attached to a web site, document or folder so they only show when it's on screen [I like this feature very much and it make sense!]

5. Stickies can be transferred from one machine to another either over a TCP/IP network connection, or by using an SMTP mail server or MAPI client. [okay, you have to do this for 1001 stick notes? otherwise who would need to do this]

6. Stickies can be hidden for a certain period, until a specified date and time, or to wake every day, week or month, to act as reminders [stick note the can remind me at the right time, nice!]

7. Stickies can have alarms set to ensure you notice them at a point you choose [nice!]

8. Free [yes!!!!!!]
