There's no shame in not getting the Dashboard. It suits some people's working style better than others. I tend to use it pretty sparingly, mostly for date lookups, the clock (great for conference calls with other countries), and the calculator.

I recently started working on two 20" cinema displays at home, and found this has reduced my need for the Dashboard considerably. Now if I want a calculator, I just leave one running in an obscure corner of my huge desktop ;)
