Kerry Scott in her Blog "Clue Wagon" has written a refreshing post on genealogy software. The refreshing part is that she iconoclastically states that it really doesn't matter which product you use.
Finally, an opinion about software that I agree with. I know that opinion may be hard to absorb...most genealogists I know are pretty locked into one program or the other. In fact most can become almost belligerent in support of their favorite.
