Your mileage may vary, but this puppy appeared to be the cause of a huge number of kernel panics and app instability under maverick (Mac OS 10.9) Even when it wasn't causing same it monopolised an inordinate amount of CPU time and added to the processing overheads. When I removed it, I got some degree of stability in Maverick. That said ... it did work fine in earlier versions of MacOS X.

Seems useful for a switcher or people who live in both worlds. Uses 38 megs of RAM on my 20010 MBP with ML which seems pretty high.
