Genealogy Software - Which one?

I found this web site that I think is really helpful for deciding which software to document all that research. Genealogy Software Review - Top Ten Reviews. This web site provides a scale of Poor to Excellent and check marks for features included in Data Enter & Sourcing, Management Tools, Views, Reports & Charts, Online Integration, Printing, & Publishing, Help & Support, and Supported Configurations. My two favorite genealogy software programs are Family Tree Maker and RootsMagic. I've used Family Tree Maker for years. Just the last couple years, I've been playing with RootsMagic. One feature I like in RootsMagic is creating web pages for my own web site.

Available at Amazon.com:
