Wouldn't it be nice if Paul did give us an answer to that question, but suddenly having a fit of psychic ability, I predict we will receive his usual "We don't comment on on going company policy" etc., etc if there is a response at all. So far, I really don't remember that any of us having received a straight honest answer to any question regarding the future of UFT that didn't amount to corporate double-talk. I'm also convinced that Genealogy.com does not care what we think about their product. I believe they intend to let it die of natural causes, claim lack of customer interest and poor sales (duh! if you don't promote it, it isn't going to sell!) and bury it in the back yard.
It's a shame that Liz has jumped ship. Having someone as editor of a magazine dedicated to computer genealogy on your side might have helped to save it (but then again, if the company is authorizing out of date ads, even that won't help!). Unfortunately, I don't blame her a bit. Why support a program that it's own company won't even get behind?
