We have access to archives dating back to the early 1980s!
We rate programs in "golden doves" from five doves (best) down to one dove (worst).
Programs are also listed in the order our reviewers consider to be best, with the first program on a page being better than the second, the second being better than the third, etc, even though they might have the same dove rating.
Note: We request that users consult directly with program authors if they have a problem with a particular program.
We have neither the resources nor the time to try and sort out individual problems.
Programs are rated on a variety of criteria, with usability being most important.
