I have used Logos/Libronix since version 1. To tell you the truth - the new Logos still doesn't hold a candle to Libronix, version 3.0g which I still have on my computer- for ease of use and research, in my opinion, I was sorry when they stopped using this as their flagship. That said, I own 24 different Bible programs, and I use them all. My favorite was BibleWorks - which is no more. To switch to Accordance - would cost me around $500 for a basic comparable software. I am paying for the Academic upgrade for Logos 8; just a trde off for the books I want. I have over $8000 invested in Logos - for a lot of books I will never use or read, or have any desire to use or read. That said, why am I still upgrading? Hoping for something good I suppose - but truthfully? The highest form of worship is study. I make trade offs every day in life. Choosing to upgrade is a trade off - I get most of what I desire (I already own Portfolio) or need, and it is as one pastor told me "How do you eat chicken? Swallow the meat and spit out the bones." The things I won't or don't use are the bones. The rest is meat. Meat for my studies; meat for those I teach; meat for G-d to teach me. For those of you who don't know - I have been here at this trough for almost 28 years - maybe longer. It isn't always good, these upgrades - I really do not like the "kitchen sink" approach, I don't need the bells and whistles. But here we are, may it all work out, and may He be exalted and glorified. To you who have doubts, concerns or are offended - why do you study anyway? I study to know Him and my Messiah better - G-d has always provided me with the means to upgrade, so here I am. Upgrade or not - that is your choice. As I said, I still have Libronix 3.0 on my computer - but here I'll spend another $500 to upgrade - a small price to pay for where G-d has brought me from. I judge no one or no corporation - if they have done wrong - G-d will judge, not me. If they have done right - He will keep them in business, and hopefully, they will bless others with the resources they provide. Remember we are to be salt and light, not whiners or complainers. Don't spend the money if you are offended - that is your way of protesting. Continue to use what you have - no one is forcing you to upgrade. Pray over it and let the Spirit guide you. If it is right for you, G-d will provide the means. If not - wipe the dust from your feet and move on. I'm not directing this at any in particular - but nothing in this world is free, except the saving blood of Messiah - and it cost Him dearly. Please remember that when you are asked to spend a few shekels to know Him better. Yes, Logos has it's issues - but so do I. I'll take my chances. Shalom to all.
