My SIRS rep told me she had tried out the MAC version.  She said she has
always been a committed DOS user, even in the face of everyone saying how
wonderful, user-friendly, and easy MAC is.  She told me the MAC version
has changed her mind.  Said she loves it and finds it easier than ever.
I don't see how anything could be much easir or user-friendly than the
SIRS we are currently running on DOS, but there you are.  Maybe that's
why they wrote it for MAC.
