    I am toying with the idea of downloading OnyX, which appears to be a free "version" of Cocktail. Anyone had any experience with this app? Any reason to spring for Cocktail instead?

    onyx is slick. cleaned up a lot of cache files for me. thats all i used it for. i didn't feel like paying for something i could technically do on my own. cocktail seems to do a few extra things that i'm not aware of. but if all your looking for is to clean up your system a little, i would try onyx and if that doesn't do it for you, try cocktail, or macjanitor.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I only want it to clean up the cache and system. I'll try it out. Thanks.

    Wow! That is an awesome application. I'm glad you posted about it. It can't hurt that it is free, either.
