Face The Inevitable

I have been reading the various strings with great interest and have searched through Genealogy.com.

It is quite clear that the "BIG" push is for Family Tree Maker. No where is UFT mentioned except under "Shopping". Not in "About Genealogy", "Awards" etc.

As so many have pointed out Genealogy.com is not advertising UFT. How many software companies do you know that don't advertise their products.

Given this it is clear to me that FTM is the only product Genealogy.com is intersted in promoting and therefore develop.

It wasn't that long ago that COMMSOFT sold off ROOTS. And here we are here today after a long string of company acquisitions. I wonder what Howard Nurse is thinking?

Lets face the inevitable and ask what is the second best genealogy program so we can get on with what we love to do.

Please someone prove me wrong! Paul?
