Franz, there is an undertone to some of Jim’s stuff, which seems to be along the line of blaming the customer. He refuses to deal with the fact that some aspects of IS seem to have never worked well for a significant number of people, or that for some people the quality of support has been very poor. I know there are many people who are happy with the program, but even they will often say they are only using a small part of the features, of the advertised capability.

My hunch is that this is likely the last release of IS we will see.
