Wow, it's nice to hear someone mention Ecco Pro! As a matter of fact, about a month ago I discovered the Yahoo group and did download Ecco Pro 4 again. I used to be a power user of it. I...

If anyone considers an app like Bonsai, it's important to know that there would be a steep learning curve if you want to use it for a GTD-type app. It's basically a very flexible outliner that by...

Thanks for the followup -- I will e-mail you about it, where should I e-mail to? Basically I had a _lot_ of information in Omni Focus, and then after some of the updates I ended up with only 3 misc...

I'd love to have an iPhone, but for now the best sync option functionality is available with Windows and a Palm PDA. Still way ahead of anything likely in the works for the Mac for some time to...

You bring up an excellent point about there being a lot of overlap between four different kinds of apps:

1) Omni Focus (dedicated GTD-type app)
2) Omni Plan (project management)
3) Omni...

I use Bonsai (www.natara.com) on my Windows PC which syncs very well with my Palm PDA. Very simple! Bonsai --> Palm PDA --> Bonsai.

I would use Omni Focus but it lacks some critical features. ...

I lost a whole bunch of data at some point during the beta testing. Hopefully the production release will be stable and this won't recur.

If you came to meetings 15 minutes late at the company I work for, you wouldn't last very long!

I have used Bonsai (www.natara.com) to implement GTD (done right) on my Windows laptop and Palm PDA in a way that is as useful and perhaps more flexible than Omni Focus.

There is an interesting...

Things has multi-tags, which OF could implement

If Omni Focus had a way to have multiple tags, then it would blow away the competition. However, with that major feature lacking, a program like Things can actually be more functional for many...

Thank you. It is great to be able to run Windows and Mac OS at the same time on my Mac Book. Too bad it can't go the other way too.

Can Omni Focus run on Windows?

OK -- there is no such thing as a stupid question, right? Well, I am quite aware that this one is almost a stupid question.

I can run Windows programs on the Mac using VMWare Fusion. Is there a...

Good question! David Allen wasn't dogmatic or "religious" about GTD as some of the people on his forum. He suggested doing what works. His book doesn't cover software; it's based on paper system. ...

I think Omni Outliner might be better able to implement one's own way of doing GTD better than Omni Focus in its present state. At least with Omni Outliner one can define another column.

I think I understand what was meant in another thread -- a perspective could be saved with more than one context expanded. It doesn't help for the use I had intended.

For a paper system one context / action makes sense. On paper, you would have to duplicate the action in order to put it into multiple contexts.

This problem does not exist on the computer. ...
