You are right. I have dropped my interest on apmd since I discovered
gkrellm-pmud. And I have been advertising it on (my) PB page too, as
you probably know.

I find gkrellm way better than Batmon. Why do you say ``almost''?
Why is Batmon still better than gkrellm-pmud? (it results to me that
the underlying code was written by Paul...)
It would be a good thing, however, to have a unified monitoring
system despite the hardware. I mean Intels are based on apm, PPCs are
based on pmu, but do applications need to know it?
