Amen to that, it *is* beyond comprehension, probably until you realise that Microsoft being such a huge albatross around real innovative developers necks means that the good stuff gets stifled, bought, buried or just plain eaten. Would it be too much to say that the world is in danger from Microsoft? I think NOT.

Ranted on enough, just wanted to agree with you and get some of this software 'angst' out of my system. I too only discovered this page this year along with ZTree. The joy of finding a XtreeGold replacement I cannot describe.

So....."Long live Xtree" and "Power to ZED"
