I thought Robert post was very optimistic. In an age of technological
contempt, its refreshing to see some honest enthusiasm. Although, I will
have to agree with Ken. Others have developed secondaries that are easier
to use and more powerful, albeit at 601 resolutions. The whole daVinci RGB,
HSL, and replace thing needs to be ironed out, and that 'everything but'
feature seems misguided, not to mention what it takes to re prioritize or
reassign a super vector number, oh and the 6 vector seems a bit ragged for
my taste, and that secondary display.... Of course this is IMHO. As one who
is close to the fold said to me recently "where is the sense of humor in
this box?".

Robert, you will have to let us know of your opinion after you've worked
with V1.4 for a few weeks. Time has a way of coloring ones opinions. 
I hope you enjoy your learning curve :)
