Had this conversation with another the other day. I see it like this: if you know you want /need real green, why waste any amount of money on a stop-gap software until you get rg? the money you spent elsewhere would have been that much closer to getting what you want.
You wouldnt go to a weight watchers meeting to find a first wife to hold you over until you find your trophy wife would you? same thing. Buy what you need the first time.
