Well friends, I'm sorry for what I'm going to say, but e-Sword is really
better. At least it has lots of features I suggested before, like words of
Jesus in red, possibility of having lists of  verses, different marking
colors, and even more than I could imagine.

May God bless that project.

I hope we can join efforts with him. After all, he only has a version for
Windows, and I'm not seeing a VB program in Linux, are you? And we have lots
of more stuff in ours, right? Both have something to win.

I believe he might be positive about joining efforts.

I have in my computer a copy of both, with all the dictionaries,
translations and stuff. And I'm only keeping Sword (the program I'm using
intensly for more than one year) because it has more stuff. Now, E-Sword
needs libraries.

My opinion: Lets make E-Sword the big Windows frontend, and let Sword
concentrate in the Linux versions.

Windows is finished anyway... my guess!
