I am just upgrading my building blog to wordpress 2.6. I am more used to the previous versions, and am having trouble with the concept of widgets. On my site right now I have 4 widgets selected, categories, archives, links and recent comments. Take the recent comments widget for example, how do I determine what plug-in that equates to or where the code is?
Also, how do I add a older plug in, such as top 10, into my dynamic widget sidebar?

You don’t. Why would you care where the code is? You’re not supposed to edit the code, that’s the whole point of using widgets. They’re a drop in sidebar module, you can configure them if they have configuration options, but in theory, that’s supposed to be the extent of it. Sure, you could locate their code and edit them, but the point is to not have to do that.
If you want to edit the sidebar code directly, then don’t use widgets. Just edit your theme’s sidebar.php file.
