Because I made mention of it, I will respond briefly.  I think it is a 
great program and I remember seeing my first presentation on it way back 
when.  I would like to make better use of it, but I need TCP/IP 
support.  It doesn't make sense for me to run several different APRS 
programs to get all of the functions I think I need.  UI-View works the 
best for me, but definitely has a few issues that will continue to be 
problematic as time goes on.  I have yet to figure out how to run Xastir 
on my Windows box (sorry, I just don't know Linux well enough to have a 
Linux box, nor do I have the time to learn another OS), plus I want to 
be able to use Precision Mapping software with whatever I run.  APRSDos 
is great for the fundamentals of APRS, but I have moved way beyond the 
linear resolution mapping that it supports (plus the TCP issue).

That's all!
