I used Microsoft products for years before I tried Frame. They never felt
intuitive, even though I've gotten a reputation as a 'power user' at
several client sites. I can make Word jump through hoops, but it feels
more like training an obstreperous rottweiler than riding a well-trained
horse.

The first time I used Frame, I fell in love. The way the menus are
organized, the logical approach to complex tasks---now >that's< intuitive!

Frame's organization and functions suit the way my mind works. Word
doesn't. Different strokes for different folks, Darren.
