I get reasonable functionality from UFT by having two versions: 3.0 for its superior find/replace capability (and I do all my editing in that version), and 2.9 for most of my reports (usually FJ, since UFT 3.0 FJ can't handle my text blocks).
I found the interface fairly easy to adapt to. We had a much harder time learning Roots III (we spent over $200 - and felt it was worth it) and Roots IV (mainly because of the events orientation, which we now love). I seldom use the documentation, except to try to find features that usually are not there (I sumetimes hope for too much in the product).
If a successor to UFT is put out that drops almost any feature, I think the company will lose many of the UFT users - they will either switch to another product or just stick with what they have as long as possible. On the other hand, if genealogy.com can adjust the interface to look at the data in both an event and a lineage way (the simple edit mode seems to try to do that), they could probably get most users to pay for the upgrade (if it does not have significant bugs!).
But PLEASE, get UFT 3.0 working they way it is supposed to work before your try to enhance/change it.
