Activity monitoring software isn't the easiest genre of software to test. There are so many different approaches used, it can be confusing.
Activity Monitor was a breath of fresh air (pardon the cliche, but it's true!). Installation is straightforward. And once you launch the client (which they erroneously call the "server" in the readme.txt of version 3.92), you'll find a very straightforward, easy-to-use interface. You won't be aggravated by a complex, confusing, cluttered interface. The look and usability is very polished and professional.
The two things that disappointed me were the price (although there are some that are much more expensive), and the fact that there is no option to lock the server PC. You can log a user off, or invoke their screen saver, but those are not good alternatives (the former can be too harsh, the latter easily defeated).
