We evaluated several programs in our lab a few years ago and selected Reference
Manager (DOS V3.xx or 4.xx). We're up to V5.05 and very happy with it; there
have been few problems, usually associated with a newer version of WordPerfect
or of our CDROM Medline (CD+) system.  Tech support is super, amongst the best.
I, too, was thinking of the Windows version but am unwilling to sacrifice the
speed of the DOS version (real fast even on a 386DX/20).
