Nope, use both FTM & RM. I try to take advantage of the best features of each.
The method to my madness is to do my updates in RM because I like their ability to place photos on all printed products and a few of the data entry manuipulations (two files) open at the same time are a couple of examples.
I maintain FTM as my Home Page on the 'Net is one of the FTM features I like and I've invested a fair amount of time to it. I especially like the ability to portray "thumbnail" photos in the My Family History section of the FTM Home Page. Which incidently needs updating.
I keep the FTM & RM data in sync by doing freqent GEDCOM's from RM to FTM. One of the few disadvantages to this procedure is that GEDCOM can't transfer the photo files.
Good luck and best wishes in maintaining your researched information.
