I found Geektool to be a mixed bag. The features it provides are very helpful, but the abysmal user interface and the nonexistent documentation make the learning curve very steep. E.g. I spent a whole day experimenting and googling to figure out how to call a shell script file from a geeklet (you have to use "source ~/.bash_profile" on the second line after the shebang, or the output of commands won't be displayed).
Also, while Geektool runs without problems on my 10.7.5 machines, it behaves completely haphazard on my 10.8.5 server (Geeklets not being displayed at all, clicking the "close" button of a geeklet not having any effect, etc. etc.). On most of these cases, it helps to kill GeektoolHelper in Activity Monitor.

Do not expect to get any help from the forum on the developer's website, as it is overrun with spam.

A lot of useful features as a Finder replacement. However, I encountered several stability issues, with the program sometimes crashing for no obvious reason. It also has problems with directories on network drives, with views not getting updated.

My biggest gripe however is that on my ML Server machine, Pathfinder seems to cause random dismounts of network shares, even in the midst of a file copy operation! Since June, I contacted the developers three times about this, once on their forum, and twice via email. I never got any reply. Have to say that I am very disappointed...
