This program is by far the best I have seen for any platform (though I haven't seen them _all_...). I've used it since its earliest DOS days, and now run the Win3.1 version under OS/2. The lead programmer is a former phage molecular biologist who is now an excellent C programmer and user-interface designer.

As an aside, it is _*RARE*_ that one will obtain something for nothing, or in this situation, the most professional software (in a large & competitive market) for nothing. One should expect a financial reward for excellence.
