    Just ran across this rather approving review of U in the Epoch Times. I get the vague feeling that the writer is praising things he doesn't really understand - but I spend my entire life doing that, so I can talk.

    Well, I think that in general Ulysses isn't as appreciated in the press as it should be. It *is* a little way-out-west before you get used to it, and some people confuse "I don't see why they've done it this way" with "there's no reason why they've done it this way." It's not the kind of app that makes good review fodder.

    I agree, I believe you need to spend some time with the program, doing the very thing it is intended for, to really start appreciating it. If all you do is to click around the interface looking for features you can tick, it will probably seem like a rather strange program. But this is also a reason why I respect the development team a great deal, for taking a good idea and for sticking to it even though it sometimes gives them bad press. Think of how much angry comments they could have avoided by just adding italics to the editor ... It takes guts, and devotion, to go against the flow like that, and as a user I am very grateful for this.

    But this was a very god review, and that's great of course ... Congratulations!
