Please note that this repeated from my reply to another comment. I meant this to appear in the main thread rather than as a reply - apologies if this the 'wrong thing' to do.

I appreciate the comments here and indeed it is difficult competing with a free product. With respect to the 'preference pane', I think I should point out that my product works fine on 10.4.1 and does not suffer from the permissions problems that are reported in the reviews for the preference pane. Widget Tamer correctly authenticates users for access to the system level /Library/Widgets folder - unlike the other product. Consequently I would dispute that the preference pane does more than Widget Tamer. Maybe it does when you deliberate break the file permissions on your system?

I can't dispute that my product costs more. It does work though...

Ultimately, it's your money and your decision whether to spend it.

Tiger 10.4.2 will make this moot, but until then, the freeware Widgets Preference Pane work fine:

Sounds to me like 10.4.2 will render this app somewhat obsolete?

In other words, what few features this may add(?) to what Apple is adding in 10.4.2 will make this worth any shareware price? I guess we'll see!
