In Reply to: Important news regarding future of UFT by Paul Burchfield of 11492

Anyone who didn't see this coming wasn't paying attention. I knew the minute FTM bought out UFT that the world would lose the best gen program going.

You people are nothing if not total idiots for scrapping UFT!! Your customers would be better served if you scrapped FTM and spent some time and energy fixing the few bugs in UFT because FTM will never amount to anything more than a pitiful beginners program.

TMG? Been there. Done that. And everything else out there. I'm going back to Roots III!!!!

My first genealogy program was Banner Blue's FTM for DOS ver. 1.0 (almost a decade ago) and I suffered through what seemed like quarterly redesigns for years, even after jumping over to Roots for my "serious" research. But I finally got sick of FTM's endless whining:

"Please buy our new update! We haven't gotten enough of your money yet! We didn't add much, but it's enough we think you'll fall for it. And while you're at it, give us all your family information so we can sell it!")
