So many memories there!  I abandoned Logos, sadly, back in 2.0 days, but jumped back on board soon after. Logos has come so far, gotten so much better, is so amazing!  

Now, if only the video included a section revealing what is ahead 15 years.

Thank you. I am very happy with this positive contribution to the forum!

The main reason for having Logos is to study God's Word.

Thanks for sharing that! It brings back memories of when I owned maybe every resource they sold. I had to work hard to write my dissertation. But now, I just enter the passage and click "Write a Dissertation" and presto! Well, it's not quite that easy.

Yet.

That was great seeing the video of 2.0. It brought back lots of memories.

Wasn't there a Logos 1. something? Logos has been my first and only Bible software, starting back in about 1989 or so when I first began leading women's Bible studies at church. I remember loading it onto my computer with floppy discs!

Memories...enjoyable and edifying! Praise the Lord for the way these resources have developed. How blessed we are to have such tools for studying God's Word, as we seek to better know Him. Thanks! Yes

Grace and peace. <><

Thanks for the trip down memory lane!  I bought Logos 3, and, to be very honest, hardly ever used it due to the steep learning curve.  I went back to my old Bible software. Thankfully, I was still in tune enough to know when Logos 4 came out and that was a game changer for me. The functionality and usefulness went through the roof for me at that time. With Logos 4, it became my primary sermon preparation tool as well as my personal devotional and prayer headquarters. Logos 5 was really an incremental improvement, but then Logos 6 took things to "a whole new level."  From what I can see, Logos 7 is a very nice improvement, but not a game changer like 4 and 6 were for me.

This is really great! I'm glad I missed 2.0; that was pretty bad! I either got started with X or 3. Which one was out in 2000?

not to quibble, but I am pretty sure series x was also 2 and soon 3 came out.

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

This feels familiar. I seem to remember having X briefly and then moving to 3.

"Logos Bible Software Series X" was launched with Libronix DLS 1.0 in 2000. (Series X v2.0 came out with Libronix DLS 2.0 in 2003: https://www.logos.com/products/lbs/lbsx20. Libronix DLS 3.0 launched in 2006; I think the "Series X" moniker might have been phased out at that time.)

That whole product line is now colloquially known as "LDLS3" or "Logos 3", probably partly because that was the last (and longest-lived) version for that product, and partly because it followed "Logos Library System 2.0" and preceded "Logos 4".

Bradley, you're like a Logos Almanac!  Oh wait--that dates me.  Ummm, you're like Siri . . . who actually is quite useful.  And works.  And knows things.  :)

thanks!
