I had to replace my MX510 with a G400 Gaming Mouse and while I like it, I prefer using just SetPoint. I now have to run both Setpoint (for my keyboard) and Gaming Software, which seems excessive. It also lacks certain SetPoint functions such as Flip. I wish Logitech used a single application for its mice and keyboard - it would then be probably easier to fully support other operating systems - the MX510 had to go to a Mac, due to lack of support for the G400.

Logitech's current direction appears to be to use one application for all G-series devices (keyboards, mice, headsets, etc.) and another application for business/consumer devices.
adding gaming features to SetPoint has proved to be problematic in the past. Logitech tried to split SetPoint into a consumer version and a gaming version (the Logitech G9 mouse uses SetPoint II, for example) but now they appear to be consolidating support for all G-series devices into LGS (Logitech Gaming Software). LGS is better able to handle some of the features on the gaming devices, especially the LCD and the programmable G-keys.
the single LGS application replaces SetPoint II for G-series mice, LGPS for G-series keyboards, and whatever the software for the G-series headsets was. despite this trend to consolidate things into LGS, I doubt that it will get support for the consumer/business products -- those will probably stay on the original SetPoint application.
I do not work for Logitech. I'm just a user.
