I am currently using Folio Views for the first time. I am extremely
pleased with it, though I have not used the other software that you
mention. I can organize and code my data in a number of ways with little
effort. It affords me great flexibility. And it is *extremely*
user-friendly. Every word in its on-line tutorial is indexed, so it's
easy to find help when you need it. Check out Miles & Huberman's book on
qualitative data analysis. They have a chart in the back that compares
various software programs including Folio Views.
