I quite like this little application. But I was distressed to read, in the 3.3.3 release notes:

I certainly I wish I owned an Intel-based Mac, but due to severe financial constraints, I remain stuck back in the PPC world. ForkLift 2.0 appears to be an Intel-only / 10.6 only product. I wonder how much either of those are *really* necessary.

Next, although I own Forklift version 1.7.x, in my current financial situation that $20 "upgrade" fee would stop me dead. Is there *really* $20 of additional functionality in this thing? I can't even run it on my current machine, but I'm skeptical.

Panoweaver costs about FIVE TIMES more than other options. For example, PTGui plus Pano2VR. For stitching, Hugin is a bit troublesome at times, but Open Source (meaning also, FREE). Eh... why bother with this?

Aren't there Open Source (that is, FREE) solutions that will produce the same results? Helicon Focus seems really pricey for a tool that has a very limited application. What am I missing here?

Move your mouse pointer left and right over any of the Paragraph, Header or List buttons: the *number* of items to be generated changes and is dynamically updated in the space above. :) This is non-standard, but rather clever.

"Adobe Flash Player 10 is a lightweight browser plug-in and rich Internet application (RIA) runtime..."

Eh... "Lightweight?"

Sheeesh. ;(

As a *free* contribution to something that is more than another "text editor" from the days of old, I greatly appreciate this effort. Thank you!

However, (*sigh* )everyone has their "Deal Breaker." Some folks gotta have footnotes; others gotta have embedded video (I joke. Slightly).

For me, the deal breaker is STYLES.

Personally, I don't ever write stuff that needs footnotes; I *do* have an (old) version of MS Word, so if I need to work in Word format, I can do it with that. I don't need columns, or a table of contents or a tabbed interface. I rarely use columnar data heavily enough to get excited about needing "real" tables. Headers and Footers would be nice, but I can do without.

What I CANNOT do without is... Styles!

I learned long, LONG ago that, when writing, as soon as I begin to think "term," "definition" or "Major Heading," "Minor Heading," "Excerpt" or "Bullet indent level I," "Bullet Indent Level II," "Bullet Indent Level III," and so forth... that if I fail to give STYLES to those individual document attributes, it will be extraordinarily unpleasant to restyle them manually later.

And just as unpleasant to RE-restyle them even later.

So I'm going to say this: without Styles, a program that you type into does not qualify as a "Word Processor." I consider it merely a glorified text editor. :(

Happily, I see on the Future Plans page for Bean... "stylesheets and text styles." I'm unsure what a "stylesheet" is, but generally, this sounds good.

But until then, for me it's just a text editor that lets me use different fonts. *yawn* ;(

Creating names for new, specialized, software products is difficult. I have to say that "Water" + "Roof" is a pretty clever twist on "Fire" + "Wall." And this from someone who does not use English as their primary language! Pretty good... :)
