Thank you for actively joining this forum’s discussions. I appreciate what you’ve shared with us about your own revelations in doing information work.

I would like to know your definition of “mainstream.” It seems to me, on a PC, that means you’re using Microsoft products exclusively. If not, then your definition of mainstream is looser than mine.

I’m not criticizing that choice, but I would be uncomfortable relying on Microsoft.

Your overall point that it is more productive to concentrate on processes than tools is certainly valid in my view. But you must realize that for many people on this forum part of the enjoyment of doing this kind of work is exploring new tools. I admire the small developers who have a fresh vision and put that vision into an app that may take years to create. I like to support them when I can. And sometimes a “mainstream” app emerges from this process (think Scrivener).

Thanks again!

Steve Z.
