UFT3 to FO6

A rant and a question.

Adios to UFT. I have used it since I started on this strange and addictive genealogy thing. UFT is wonderfully thorough. And the people on this board are extremely helpful. However, I got so tired of UFT's slowness. Macros helped ... but when it takes 45+ minutes to import/export a GEDCOM vs. less than 3 minutes to import/export the same GEDCOM in Family Origins ... and similarly on web file creation ... well, over time these things add up. So adios UFT. I expect I will keep it installed and use it occasionally for special reports and such.

I know there are a lot of TMG'ers out there, and of course FTM'ers. Anyone else move from UFT to FO? Any specific issues? And can anyone explain why UFT was so slow? Old Fox Pro architecture?
