This is my experience, also (with Synon/Obsidian).  But another question to
ask is whether a programmer who knows RPG would rather learn Cool:2E or more
about RPG.

I think Cool's relatively modest success in the market answers that one.

| Jim,
| I've been tempted to add my 2 cents to this thread but your points are
| right on.  Ask a programmer who knows RPG and Cool:2E (aka Synon) whether
| he'd rather maintain an RPG program (any flavor!) or a Cool:2E program and
| I know as well as you do what the answer would be.  Cool!
