Heads up: The Hall of Fame ranking algorithm will soon take into account the popularity of each developer's gadgets. The new algorithm will also consider contributions to the developer community, including blog posts, articles, and volunteer roles such as API Guru and Student Ambassador.
The upshot is that some developers' spots are going to change, and the Hall of Fame will have a new leader.
As always, we value your contributions to Google Desktop and will listen closely to any questions and concerns you may have. You can reach us at gd-developer AT google DOT com.
