Try superkaramba or gDesklets or aDesklets which'd allow you to create your own widgets.
There's a widget fot Superkaramba which gives you a Apple's dashboard like panel. Personally, I have it installed this widget on my system and just love the animation when the mouse hovers over it.

Use gDesklets as it's specifically geared towards GNOME. It's not exactly like Dashoard if you're coming from a Mac but it's close enough.
