Ratings:

An extremely good program, one of the best at what it does
  Try it. This program is worth downloading and messing with.  A very good program.
Potential.  Some good things about the program but some key weaknesses that hold it back.
  Don't bother.  Program has many flaws that keep it from being used without a headache.
