For me, I keep coming back with 5 being a 4. It's so simple, but I won't be 
happy until I can get something like Digital Webster as a service. Is there 
any way we can use our legal copies on the NextStep and OpenStep CD's as the 
data source for a free version? I really got addicted to it when I was 
working on my master's thesis.

I also agree that Quantrix/Improv is great. It's the most promising killer 
app that never caught on. I'm not sure that it would catch on it's third 
incarnation, but I'd use it as my every day spreadsheet in a heart-beat.

Just my 2 cents. 

BTW, I think there are probably a lot of ex-nexters out there on the 
sidelines waiting for 1.0.

When it's out, I think we all may be surprised how quickly it could snowball. 

Keep up the good work!

It may be coming together slowly, but it's amazing how much has been done so
