Just a comment based on the last month`s or so email. Particuliar
responses on various vendor tools should be sent privately to the
originator of the particuliar question. Although its nice to know that
my competitors tools has bugs as well, I'm very sure that if
the shoe was on the other foot it would be uncomforatble. Since this
is primarily a technical forum we (software vendors) are not supposed
to advertize the merits of our tools. Except for some most notable
exceptions (sometimes we software vendors get exited) I can say that
we tend to comply. I don't mind users asking for particuliar models,
and merits of particuliar vendor tools. However broadcasting the
responses on the SI deflector is in my humble opinion not appropriate
and in some cases not fair.

Happy holidays to all! (politically incorrect to say the other
salutation these days)
