That’s not so bad, as you wouldn’t/shouldn’t really be running it with anything else running.  As for CPU usage, it uses between 10 and 20% plus the application it calls.  It’s one major concern to me is the pregnant pause between clicking some thing and anything happening, this can be anything from 3-5 secs. on my machine.  I think it is something worth keeping an eye on to see how it develops.
 For now though I think we should stick with LCC.  I would, however, suggest a couple of things to make it better.  This is based on comments by a new user.   Could the tool tips have a bit of an explanation as to what each thing does and if an application isn’t installed could it say so when clicked.
