Why o why does MacUpdate track Unix software in the main Mac software channel? Just a suggestion, but i would prefer it if you had a separate tab/category for server software, daemons, CLI utilities and the like. That way, the 90% who don't use it won't have to contend with the added entries on the tracker. (I do personally use a lot of server-oriented software and CLI tools, so i would personally check that category for updates. But my preference would be to separate them out to another category listing.)

I've been a long-time user of MenuMeters, so that is my frame of reference coming into this program. MenuMeters is a stalwart favorite & just works - for free! But if you're ready for more information and flexibility, this packs a lot of information into the same compact space. I've got it set up to look just like MenuMeters, but each menu provides a much greater wealth of information.

I would like to be able to customize more colors than just the default highlight color and various charts -- mostly interested in changing the colors of the real-time graphs on the menus themselves. Also, the world clock isn't flexible enough for my needs so i'm sticking with Meridian (custom labels, ordering, offsets + alarms). Also, the fan control doesn't seem to work on my 2011 iMac.

i bought Toucan Search and have generally been quite pleased with it. At $2.99, it's hard to find room to complain, and actually i was impressed at the level of configurability in the preferences. The old freeware Locator X used to be my mainstay search application for years (never could get used to Spotlight nor found it as fast or useful as a locate database search), so Toucan is filling in that gap for me now that PPC apps don't work in Lion/ML. Toucan is quick and usually has low resource overhead (except a few odd times when it spikes CPU usage and needs to be restarted). It's obviously young and needs some polishing (search within results is the most glaring omission), but it's eminently useful and a bargain at its price point. Recommended as the best non-Spotlight search solution on recent Mac OS versions.
