Cocktail is a nice application, but I see no need to switch from my OnyX and TinkerTool combo for maintenance and system stuff. That said, I might give it a look over. Laughing

For me it's OnyX and MainMenu. Both do the exact same job while keeping $15 in my wallet.

Great but..

I have to agree onyx is better.

I didn't like this all to well. What scares me is we do not know enough about leopard to be messing with the system files.

I switched from OnyX to Cocktail when 3.8 came out. I think it's the best in this class of apps and it has served me well.

I have been using cocktail for years and have never had any problems. Why is onyx so much better? $15 seems like a small price for such a nice little utility.

I wouldn't say that OnyX is any better. People are just into the free thing for the most part. I agree with you are saying though. $15 is a small price to pay for something that works for you. Cocktail also has a nice history of being a pretty a reliable application.
