$95 is quite high for no enhanced functionality over the UNI script, which costs $30.
Probably you should wait the first the release of TopLinks plugin, and compare the result on live sites, before saying "no enhanced functionality over the UNI script"... I will post links of working TopLink sites, when will be available or will have owners permission. Also I have NO doubt in ease of use of TopLinks plugin. It has a lot options, and advanced installer, which really helps beginner users.

About the price. There are different marketing strategies:
  • sell a lot cheap products, and spread around the world.
    or
  • sell expensive products, and sell less of them, but you can give quality support to those few users.
    I chose that second strategy. My other plugins will be also expensive when I'll release them.
    Those who will need my products, will anyway buy for that price, too.

    I don't want to discuss about the price furthermore.
    If the price is too expensive for you or anybody else, no problem, just ignore my plugin.

    In fact as the UNI script can count hits at a REMOTE site, does it not do more than your script?
    You may note some things:
  • it will be only v1.0 release, while Remote Count plugin is already v2.1.1c. Note the version difference.
  • I don't know exactly, what the Remote Count plugin can exactly do. I can just imagine based on the description I saw in Ian's thread, and a working site. Can Remote Count plugin do toplist in each category? I saw just an absolute toplist on the working site. Didn't see category toplists.
  • though TopLinks doesn't count exposures currently, it can be easily added, if users will need it. Also other features as well, if there will be really demand for a particular feature.
  • I will make available some screenshots about TopLinks plugin & working live sites, after first version was released, so everybody can see features with their eyes.

    Otherwise TopLinks plugin doesn't want to compete with Remote Count plugin. I'm sure both plugins has/will_have satisfied users.
    Customer satisfaction is the most important thing. Everything else simply doesn't matter.
