I'm beginning to appreciate the depth of the new databases here ... and the great integration with the various Logos tools.

The Bible Word Study tool, which is perhaps my most used, has taken such a great leap forward. The Root section is a great learning tool, as much as an analytical one ... I'm trying to work my Greek up again, 10 years after leaving Bible college and this kind of facility is only going to help.

I know you said the shine was off the apple after your first day and some frustration with L5. I'm glad to hear you are feeling more positive about your upgrade. As I said I really value L5 over L4. It still needs development, but that is on-going and should make a great product even better.

Yeah I felt pretty fed up in those first few hours with the crashes (fixed now), and I'd happened to start my exploration with the features that are perhaps most in need of development, but after watching Mark's video - I hope he's getting commission :) - I realised that there was a great deal to enjoy, not least of all in the BWS which I use all the time, and not least of all that there's now proper Win7 Cleartype display.

It is a bit annoying though that I can't seem to add the NIV2011 Reverse Interlinears without a base package ... grrrr. Not an option really having just bought the Minimal Crossgrade and used up my discount. Ah well.

If you are interested in getting a base package and the discount is the thing you are concerned about you should call sales.  I changed my mind about the package upgrade I chose about a week after upgrading to L5 and was very pleased with the response from Santiago when I called SalesSmile.

It's always worth a call to sales ... some combination of returns and repurchases make get you what you want.
