Not enthusiastic or disaffected. Just realistic.

I doubt that any tool will be the "be all, end all" product. It all has to do with "fit" within the organization. Don't get me wrong, I really like Flare. But I do think it's unforgiveable that they don't give one the choice of how to handle file references. Other than that, it was a very good fit for our needs.

Fascinating. This is like asking: Coke or Pepsi?

For awhile all I was getting were the pro-Flare responses.

Now I'm hearing that Flare isn't that great, but neither is RoboHelp.

We have a bunch of enthusiasts, as well as the disaffected -- just like
with everything else.
