I've been making a point in recent meetings with IBM re: Connections that the Widgets page is a little out of place, particularly on new installs, and that it should possible to disable it for all users.

Good idea?

Well, it turns out that the option has been in Connections since at least 3.0!  Just go to the Connections Homepage features Administration tab (you need the appropriate rights of course), and there it is:

Fountainhead Home Page

Just switch this to 'Disabled' and Save, and the tab goes away.  In fact it disappears immediately...

Fountainhead Home Page

Not sure how I missed that, but maybe you have too!
