Widget = any sort of little doodad you can add to your desktop. plasmoids, 
google gadgets, osx dashboard widgets, etc... that group of things seemed to 
already have "widget" as the most common name before plasma came along.

Plasmoid = a plasma-specific widget.

Applet = the class within libplasma that all plasmoids inherit.
