Well, it may not be APE and it may not be shapeshifter but my system was fine until I use shapeshifter. Things just started to get progressively more sluggish. After 2 days sherlock and the system preferences just wouldn't open. Upon restarting it would not boot. I'm restoring the OS right now. Boo to them all!

You are right. APE does not do any harm. I haven't had even one single problem with it since I first installed that in my G4. I just love it.
There are lots of people are having problem since OS X came out and they still don't understand why and why the system is freezing or crashing. I've found out there is one thing we all should look into is, check you ram. You could be having new or good memory sticks, but they are not necessary getting along with your Mac. Pull them all out and put them back in one at a time until the problem shows, then you know which is the one which is not getting along with your Mac then replace it. I'm sure the problem will be gone.
Anyway, APE is great stuff.

To say that APE can cause kernel panics is a sign of technical ignorance. Because APE does not affect anything on a kernel level, it by definition is isolated from causing panics.

My system is stable with multiple APEs installed, including one I've written myself. I know the technology it uses and am quite confident that it can't cause hard lockups or kernel panics, because it only affects desktop applications like the Finder.

My suggestion is that you pay attention to other programs that you install, particularly ones that come in .pkg formats, and use a program like Pacifist to check the contents of suspicious addon .pkgs before installing. Doing this will save you more trouble than uninstalling some mostly harmless APEs will.

I read somewhere that APE and Cunning Fox conflicted somehow.

How I miss my old OS 9 (and earlier) friend Conflict Catcher ...

Too bad Shapeshifter (and many other clever hacks) are based on the APE structure. Despite developer insistence to the contrary, APE alone does cause system problems. Look into the MacFixit forums and see how often uninstalling APE will fix things. For me, my systems crash at least 10 times as frequently with APE installed (sometimes even once a day). Uninstall APE and I'm back up to weeks and weeks of hard-use without a single kernel panic or other serious crash.

Puh-leeeeez.

I have used APE since day one, and not once has it been the cause of any issues on my Macs. They have always been rock-solid since OS X 10.1.5.

I am currently using my 900MHz iBook, OS X 10.3.2, and it is rock-solid... never crashes... none of my apps quit unexpectedly. I swear on the graves of my ancestors this is so.

I grow very tired of people who have, for one reason or another, a suspect installation of OS X and blame all their instability issues on APE.

It is not right... Period and end of story.

If you're implying that I wrote those two reviews, then send an email to MacUpdate and try to get them revoked. They won't be, because I didn't write them, but you can always try.
