I agree with all. Endnote was GREAT for my thesis and even more useful for
changing reference format of a paper (from names to numbered, a pain to
do by hand). Endlink allowed me to import references from Medline and 
the whole thing was so easy that a friend could be shown in 5 minutes how
to do it. I was also more than happy that I didn't need to type in the
references myself (none except for the odd unpublished/in press papers) -
just got them off Medline (with Endlink) and tranferred them into my thesis
library, with Endnote taking care of all the formatting.
