[sword-devel] OSIS:What is the future? Who is using it now?

Speaking of STEP and other formats such as those used by Libronix (Logos 
Bible) - with programs vanishing, it is costly for all who have invested in 
electronic books rather than paper books.

I wish there was something that "if you could see it on the screen" you 
could convert it to a SWORD module.

I have lots of Logos books that I can get no where else (or not all with the 
same reader), and would like to get rid of the clunky and slow Libronix 

I'm using the old Logos interface which is much faster - but it was 
developed and worked fine under Windows 3.0 system.

As for STEP (I'm not sure why this was brought up), it has a decreasing
number of supporting applications. Some of its supporters have ceased
using STEP; others have simply gone out of business. And as Michael
mentions, it has no steering committee at the moment, which makes its
future rather bleak. But STEP really has a different objective from
OSIS. They serve fairly different needs.
