I don't know if the programmer of this project already knows of

http://mosaicbetter.codeplex.com/

Iknow this project was first and i think to both teams should work together.
The other team has made a really good looking program with a lot settings while this just is bad looking.

I really like the new features in the lockscreen but a think you should get some code from mosaic'better and than move on.

We wont. We have just implement a new system that allows Widgets to talk to each other. The store is in mid of development, the calendar widget is done. Lockscreen now shows all unread emails and will eventually soon also include Unread Instant Messages from WLM.

Have you at least implemented auto lock screen option so the screen auto-lock after X minutes? 

And since this wont be Windows 8 clone, i use Mosaic with my regular desktop, but starting point (0,0) is upper left corner of the screen and everything that i put on desktop goes under tiles so i had to put them in the right side of the screen, but since my monitor uses 1680x1050 i have a big space between a tile and edge (around 1/3 of a tile). it would be nice if you could implement an option to change a start (0,0) point of the screen to the upper right corner of the screen.

That are options that would make your project perfect :)

If it crashes you should create an issue under the the Issue Tracker tab and upload log file (from log folder) there.
