    "Great software!"

    "Great product! Looking forward to the upgrade!"

    "Please, dont let me start messing around with stupid ... (name of competitor 1 deleted) ... or ugly ... (name of comptetitor 2 deleted)... . Your product deserves some spread."

    "How to buy your terrific program ???"

    "Congrats for the release of proFit 5.1. I really enjoy playing around with it."  

    "Let's face it...you have a great product with no real competition in this niche. Cheers!"

    "I saw one of your Profit version on macintosh. It's a good software but i've PC. So my question is : is there a PC version and if right what is its price."
    (Our answer: Buy another computer...)

    "I am delighted by the possibilities of Pro Fit 5.1. I never knew something about this product and it's also rare to find plotting and graphing programs which are fully AppleScriptable. Your team has done a great job, but let the people know about pro Fit......."

    "I have been using proFit for 2 days. I don't know how I missed the existence of this program but I wanted to let the developers know that I think it is FANTASTIC (especially at the price) and I have been recommending it strongly to many people and hope to have our (small) company make it the standard data analysis package (buying 10 copies of Mathematica is a bit steep)."

    "pro Fit, an excellent plotting package, by QuantumSoft. Highly recommended. And I mean highly! Produce simple plots with a point and click interface. Mac convenience of dragging labels around on plots / adding lables etc and (hooray) produces good postscript output. Demo, free to download, is fully functional apart from limitations (e.g. data size limited to 1000 by 20) which will go away if you pay up (which I haven't needed to do yet, ahem). Full documentation can also be downloaded. Compile modules to do complex data manipulation, add macros to draw interesting things."
