Yes, you get used to them quickly. And 'Spax' is almost a household name 
when it comes to this kind of screws. They do have an impressive selection.

I took a look at those. To me they look like a proprietary modifikation 
to Torx that doesn't really offer much inprovements over Torx. Kind of 
like PH and PZ.

The most annoying problem with metric and imperial screws are the #10-32 
and M5, they _look_ the same but they aren't and it's easy to ruin a 
thread if you pick the wrong one.
