Gadgets, for vista, are just zip files with html, css and javascript files.  have a look at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/topics/vista/gadgets-pt1.mspx for more explanation on creating them.   You could do the portions in vb2008 but won't actually write any vb code unless you connect your gadget to a vb web service to receive data.

The same simple tools that are used to create a functioning web page can work for this, but it is all focused on the client side of development.  It is just set to a smaller size.   VB2008 should have an html editor, css editor and be able to edit javascript.  I am not aware of anything that will write the gadget for you with no code.
