It's actually $36 @ Kagi.

Yes, Keyboard Maestro version 4 is working fine on both Leopard and Snow Leopard. Version 3 is working on Leopard, haven't tested on Snow Leopard. Think you need 4 though.

Keyboard Maestro is the single strongest productivity enhancer on OS X. KM allows us to program any repetitive task sequence in a matter of minutes. We've tried AppleScript and Automator but for sophisticated tasks they take hours of tinkering to get them to do just what we want. With Keyboard Maestro, if you can write the steps down, your macro is already done. Our programming team moving over from Windows was thrilled to be able to set some essential keyboard shortcuts to what they are used to to get off to a fast start on Mac.

Personally I use it to make keyboard shortcuts work the same across multiple applications and to make Apple Mail accept Eudora keyboard shortcuts. I also have hot keys for filing mail. The first software I bought when the office switched from Windows to Mac was a site license for Keyboard Maestro.

Can anyone post some feedback whether or not this is working on slow leopard?

I love it. It makes frequent activities so much faster. I can navigate to a favorite web page in my default browser with a simple keyboard command, system-wide, whether my browser is open already or not. I can open a favorite document or run a favorite application with a simple keyboard command. You need to do little more than think it, and it's done. One step. So flexible and powerful!

I tried KM after reading about that Daring Fireball used it too.

I apply GTD at work with Entourage. KM made my life easy INSTANTLY.
KM is fast, works as advertised and has strong support.

Bought it, use it non-stop. Have configured Safari to behave like Firefox shortcut-wise, Entourage to do my bidding and am slowly establishing global shortcut keys.

Final: Keyboard Maestro just works.

One of my top utilities. KM lets me save tons of time and clicking with shortcuts in every shape and size. Stable and versatile it keeps my work flow flying.
