I agree with Rene 100%. If I haven't expressed my opinion on the
subject yet, I'd like to say that Rene has done a wonderful job
and that he should not attempt to please everyone. Pleasing
everyone will result in a mediocrity (averaging effect).
I remember QuickBook being threatened by the same "averaging"
effect that happens when an attempt is made to please everyone.
At one point, everything became literally dull grey! I detest
IMO, Rene's work is superb. If any of you think you can do better,
by all means, please submit a proposal for everyone to see.
Then, we can be able to compare.
