The problem with learning new things is that even though the end result may lead to something better and/or more efficiently produced, to learn it takes time. Probably more time to learn that it would be to produce the original way. Subsequent times would be faster and/or better, but it's all about sucking it up for that first time.
I just installed Windows Vista and am struggling to use it. It's frustrating. I'm also about to install Office 2007 and InDesign CS2. So lots of frustrations in the near forecast. JM
