They are so much different as wasn't supported till now. Screenlets may or may not come back to life and still full of bugs and not addressed. And gdesklets is dead or at least gasping lasts breaths of life. And both haven't had any real constant development or progress in quite awhile.
Using two screenlets right now. But they have their quirks like reseting Cinnamon moves them to center of screen even tho they are locked to position. I would think something specifically designed for Cinnamon would do better. Screenlets also have a few serious bugs that can rear their ugly heads when spawning additional screenlet from mother screenlet.
