My, oh my and Heavens to betsy, having traveled the same trip from non-windows to the final UFT, I would not keep the present TMG if you paid me with a new computer. TMG has the most confusing book imaginable and more confusing technical response. I can vouch for that because I have tried them all at one time or other over the last few years. I have been doing research for 40 years and can give you a great many horror stories about computer programmers and their "technical" support teams. For the person who just wants to enter their information and get sensible printouts for their family and friends, UFT is the choice. You don't need all that "POOOOWWWEERR" that TMG tries to provide with little knowledge about how to explain it to the computer novice that just wants to enjoy himself. My, oh my, keep me from computer geeks who design these programs and books that take more brain muscle than the average researcher can afford to give to the "Super" genealogical programs. You can get too complicated and honest reviewers - I said honest reviewers of programs - should advise the unknowing beginner that some programs are mega-worry systems. TMG is a mega-worry system.
