TMG is more flexible. You can make it do just about anything you want. And it handles contradictory information better than UFT.

Genealogy.com has done a terrible thing, but it's not surprising. UFT 3 has always been buggy and the last time I called customer support they were really snotty and unhelpful. Basically, the guy didn't know what he was talking about. I guess they've been planning to dump us for some time. Way to go.
