The basic point is that you would not purchase it knowing that the company
had no intention of ever supporting it in the future with enhancements or
corrective maintenance features. I use Describe because I purchased it
before the company went under. I continue to use it because it works
reasonably well. However, if I knew that their desmise before hand and
someone asked me to recommend a word processing package, Describe would
not have been on my list. In this case, Powersoft will sell you VX Rexx,
but it is a dead product so why buy it.
