The dilemma... which software to compare next

I should know better than to ask. Now that I have some suggestions for comparing Mac software beyond the list I generated for myself I'm in avoidance mode. A couple suggestions I just don't want to add to the list. A couple would be great to do but mighty time consuming.Read more...

A 210 Year Old Garden?
