I haven't got as far as FM9, but the upgrade from FM7.2 to FM8 was well worth it for me because of its support of Boolean operators in condition expressions. I use conditions a lot and this feature (in conjunction with FrameScript - the standalone Boolean condition functionality in FM8 isn't useful enough on its own) simplified my workflow greatly, more than justifying the upgrade cost. (Plus I happened to coincide with the TCS1 release so upgrading to the suite was a bonus). I haven't yet felt the need to upgrade further, though.

I am using FM9 trial now and not finding enough improvement in features to justify the c0st to my management. Another way to ask the question is, does anyone have any experience with FM 7.2 and compatibility with computer system utilities as time goes by? Thanks! Jim Duszynski
