Re: Important news regarding future of UFT

". . .Also it might be helpful to soon to be Ex UFT users if others would tell about their experience in testing other programs, good and bad."

And when considering another program, it can help by going to the program website and look at a demo of that program.

The TMG demo is at http://www.whollygenes.com/html/files.htm.

You download the demo, then open it with unzip. By the way, there was an unzip.exe
attached to UFTree. You will probably find it
in one of the UFTree directories. Use it to open the TMG demo.
Somehow that seems appropriate. <grin>)

The TMG website has oodles of info, including FAQs at http://www.whollygenes.com/html/r5.htm

The TMG home page seems to be http://www.whollygenes.com

There is a lot of information there.
Using the home page 'Users' tab, I found that
there is a TMG support group here in Portland OR and other places. I called the local contact individual.

Two of us UFTree users attended a 'meeting', saw a lot, asked many questions, and received definitive answers from a very knowledgable TMG user.

I did a search, online, for Legacy, found their website, stumbled my way through their demo, did not find a local user group.

For TMG, do look at what TMG users are asking at

http://www.genforum.genealogy.com/tmg

As there is a maillist for UFTree users,
there is also a maillist for TMG users.

It is probably a good idea to read about what current users are complaining about
in TMG and in Legacy. Sorry, I don't yet have the Legacy maillist address or Legacy user website address.

So far, for every question that I have seen about TMG that claims 'such and such' UFTree item does not work or transfer to TMG, I have, with 24 hours, seen 'yes it does in the current version.'

From what I have seen so far, like UFTree, TGM allows the user to do things the simple way and also the in-depth way.

Don't get me wrong. I am still considering which way I will jump.

"I for one am not fully convinced TMG is the only way. They talk of flexibility but I keep running into things that restrict my flexibility."

Claire, could you please be a bit more exact about that? I would surely like to hear what bothered you. It might bother me too.
