Thanks, WGray. You express exactly my experience and sentiment. I too bought NV1 in 1987, January based entirely on the PC Magazine Award and I found it great.
The posts I saw re: conversion were just daunting and it seemed to have many shortcomings (which I can not afford).
I lament as well what today are apparent limitations (though they were not in 1987) of NV1, but I learned to live with them.
I will stick to NV1, and if I ever decide to go to a “modern” system, it is not likely to be NV2.
Personally, it was very disappointing to see QWP struggle for countless years with their windows version, only to come out with a half-baked program; especially given the incomparable usability and value of NV1.
