Should I install Growl?

I purchased Growl in the past, but should I install it now that I clean installed Mountain Lion? Is it actually useful now that we have the notification center in Mountain Lion?

It's a 'Gimmick', I had it before as well but do you really need it?

Don't need it. Redundant when you have Notifications. Had it and once I upgraded to ML no longer needed it.

agreed, not as useful since notification center debuted. There are some apps, however, that are growl compatible that are not NC compatible, so if you have those, it might be useful.

Get Hiss instead. It will forward Growl notifications to the Notification Center.
