An issue I have faced is the difficulty just to get something installed on
my PC. I have worked at places that I was unable to install software on my
machine. The hoops to jump through to get permission to have something
installed followed by trying to get the someone to come sign-on to my PC to
install the software just overwhelms the advantages. I am sure that I am not
alone in that.

Follow that by the learning curve of using some of these products. I have
been using RDI for about 9 months now, but there are a few things that I
have yet to figure out how to do in RDI that I can do very easily in
PDM/SEU. For some issues, I find it simply faster to use SEU to make fixes.

But those are a few other things that stand in the way of adoption of WDSC,
RDI, etc. that go beyond knowing the that the tools exist.

"But I strongly suspect that a much larger portion of the midrange
community simply didn't know anything other than SEU existed. If I'm right,
it wouldn't be fair to call it a choice."

You mean they missed the constant nagging in PDM about "Have you tried ..."
? That message was around a long tie and you had to put some effort in to
get rid of it. I guess there are those who don't know about RDi but frankly
these days it has to be willful ignorance because references to it are
