Can't get it to work.

Not even the latest release with X11 already bundled in (missing X11 installation files were what botched my first attempt), the one that's touted as: "you only need to run this one installer"... Install it, try to open some data, fail.

So then I go... "hmmm... why bother with this when I have perfectly good alternatives?". Manifold and Global Mapper are not free or open products, but they are very affordable and work.

Tried for the heck of it, after working a few times it fails. QGIS is more stable, but your better off biting the bullet & spending some money.

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."

I am a fan of QGIS, I like using it to set up my MapServer .map files.

I do hear though that the QGIS-Grass plug in is pretty cool. I haven't used it personally, but sounds cool.
