That's really encouraging to hear. I suppose switching could become
necessary down the road, and while I've not actually worked with it, I've
seen it and not liked it at all -- so little, in fact, that thirty seconds
of the online demo was all I could take. Why does Microsoft do this? I wish
the company would make two versions -- one for the publishing community and
one for people who don't need a product that doesn't fundamentally change
every four years.
