Boy, is *that* ever painting with a broad brush!
It all depends on the forum. Some, such as that offered by WinBatch, J
River Media Center, Rockbox, and AnythingButiPod, are fantastic!
I also belong to a Word forum thatâlike this oneâis both very active and
provides authoritative answers from those in the know.
Woody's Lounge, now rolled into the Windows Secrets Lounge, used to be very
viable; I have not been impressed of late, however. And I've not yet had
the opportunity to use products from Madcap or Atlassian, so can neither
rave nor disparage them.
As always, YMMV.
