- They make you enter your data into forms and require you run reports to see (some of) your data.
- They are person-centric, rather than source-centric.
- They emphasize formatting your citations correctly, rather than documenting your sources correctly
- They promote merging other people’s data with yours, rather than keeping them separate and virtually merging
- They don’t adhere to GEDCOM standards, thereby not allowing you to correctly transfer your data between programs.
- They try to do everything, except the one thing you want them to do: Help you quickly and easily record your data, evidence and conclusions and let you make use of them.
Sorry. The last few days I’ve been thinking a lot, and had to put this down.
