Maintenance 2.5.0, 20 Feb 19 and OnyX 3.5.8, 20 Feb 19, have been released. They are both made by Titanium Software. I opened both apps and looked at their startup screens. OnyX has 4 areas (multifunction utility) to choose from. Maintenance has 1. Both are the same. I can’t see having the Maintenance app as they are both FREE.

There is only one option for Maintenance 2.5.0 because that is all it does - maintenance.

Oynx 3.5.8 has other esoteric features and tweaks for "personalizing" a Mac.

Apparently, many don't care about the Onyx features and merely want to perform one-click machine upkeep, otherwise this excellent mature product would not exist.

Half a star? Get help.

A half star review is unwarranted. There are VALID reasons for separating the maintenance functions into a separate app. I am the unofficial support guy for all my friends and family when it comes to computers. I am very comfortable with having the Maintenance app installed on their Macs and after instructing them, letting them run it as needed. I am NOT however comfortable having most of them running the Onyx app, unless they are fairly computer literate. Onyx is not dangerous, anything it does can be reverted, but it's best you know what you're doing.

I know for a fact in the work place, I have observed many IT shops that allow Maintenance to be installed, so it can be run as needed, but restrict the use of Onyx. This is critical for work place IT departments where uniformity among systems must be maintained. Having Mac systems with different tweaks (implemented using Onyx) is harder to maintain and service.

MacUpdate repeatedly seems to get the version references incorrect. From the Developer's website WARNING: There is a specific version of Maintenance for each major version of the operating system. Use the specific version, and don't try to use a non-compatible version.

Absolutely essential if running Mojave on an unsupported Mac ala dosdude1.
