I think I asked a reasonable question. A comparison is not
necessarily finding bad spots in another product.
What I was asking for was not more than a hint
where the differences are, since at first glance the screenshots
both look interesting, but it's difficult to judge whether
each tool fits one's needs anough to invest time playing
with it. I'm sure that both products have their place, since
they are probably addressing different kinds of users.
Exactly that is what I thought you might be interested to tell
us about.
