$ Income vs Account Growth

I like to open threads to collect feedback from subscribers , thats not my first one , my question now is do subscribers care about account growth % or - semi - steady monthly $ income with low DD ? There is a difference between the 2 approaches , for stocks systems % growth will be somewhat slow unlike futures - which eventually cuts both ways ofcourse - , so would you consider a stocks daytrading system if it has a steady income stream - with low DD - $ wise not % wise ? Would you autotrade such system ?
