Thank's anyway though, you guys been helpful, really. But it's not for me. I just need something that works out of the box.
First off i remember a great oxymoron i saw on some oxymoron list site... "Microsoft Works"
Anyway, to give an analogy. I play guitar... when i first started learning my teacher wanter me to learn all the theory behind music (Modes, scales, etc.), when all i wanted to learn was how to play Smells Like Teen Spirit. I went about with that attitude for almost 2 years until i realized i wasn't getting any better and wasn't able to learn anything new. So I went back to the teacher wanting to learn what he wanted to teach me, and with that new attitude i knew how to compose songs properly (pls no 'think outside of the box' crap here i'm trying to make a point
) and i knew what made a minor chord a minor chord or a second inversion chord a second inversion chord. and i would say by the 4th year i was playing guitar i enjoyed playing it much more and i knew a fair amount about music theory. knowledge is power, you can sit there and play the into to 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' over and over using windows to impress your friends or you can gain something from the experience of playing guitar or using your computer.
