"Back in the day", this program was iTunes for fonts - a useful utility that made it super-easy to buy content.

Then they decided to charge for it, and I stopped using it, and also stopped buying fonts. Maybe this is because I'm a casual font user, and never really needed new fonts...but I can't imagine I'm alone in this. I'm guessing the loss of us casual users was a strategic move for Linotype, but I kind of miss those days.

I don't know why key macro software has such a steeply increasing cost curve, but so far, all of them have. Youpi key used to be free, then became expensive. Typinator was the most economical choice for 10.6, but now entails an annual (ish) upgrade train. I'll hop off for now - the new features of 5 aren't enough to warrant the cost for me.

Years overdue as a Universal app, but still the best font editor out there. I was surprised how well it worked under Rosetta, but now that Apple has deprecated PPC compatibility, FontLab has been forced to port to the Intel architecture. It seems like they did a fine job. Familiar look-and-feel, solid performance and so far crash-free. Hopefully their public beta period shook out the major bugs - I haven't ran into any this version. It's nice that they aren't charging their loyal customers for supporting Intel processors. I'd like to say I expected it, but lately haven't been getting that kind of joy from many of my publishers. Belated kudos to FontLab.

Whoops. MacUpdate Desktop automatically updated my licensed Pixelmator without warning me that I would be downgrading to a version that I don't have a license to. I now either have to pay full price, or dig around for my backup copy of 1.x.

As I was reading through the literature on Flying Logic Pro, I got an odd feeling this system felt like the System Dynamics apps like Vensim and Simgua. Digging a bit deeper in the Wikipedia article on "Theory of Constraints", which FLPro is based on, it appears that there is an unattributed (by the TOC community) relationship between them.
