Analogue clock widgets for Windows XP

With Windows7 beta already out, Windows XP would be history sooner rather than later. But the fact is majority of Windows users are still stuck to this 8 year old operating system. Along other enhancements there is widget capability which makes Vista more beautiful, visually at least. One widget I specially like on Vista and Ubuntu Linux as well is analogue clock widget. One way to get this like widget in XP is to install third party software like Vista sidebar(not official). However, you can install standalone small programs to run analogue clock widget over XP. Following are the two freewares for this purpose:
