I have two versions of Family Tree Maker on my computer: Version 11 and 2010. I'm still using a Windows XP computer and I find that the older version of FTM is much quicker to load and somewhat easier to navigate. The 2010 version has many more features though, such as being able to search the web and use sites like Ancestry.com directly from the program. I have to admit that I haven't explored other programs recently, so I'm curious to see what others recommend.
