Granted. I still prefer it until installwatch does something about their 
output file. I just can't work with it, also they never provided a script to 
parse their output file so you can use it to uninstall. They expect us to 
write out own script, or use their rpm conversion script and then use rpm to 
uninstall or something.

Both were unacceptable to me.

And yes i am talking about it's status a few months ago, perhaps all that has 
changed now. Can you tell some more about it's current status Ron?
