What Genealogy Software Are You Using?

I'm ready to enter the 21st century and start using computer software to better organize my 20yr old records. For the past couple of weeks I've just been using the family tree organizer on the ancestry.com website, but I'm ready to take advantage of more elaborate features of a stand-alone software package.

What programs are you all using?
I know that trial versions are available, but I'd like to hear your experiences.

I've found a handful of references to Family Tree Maker and RootsMagic by searching several afrigeneas forums. Is anyone using Legacy or The Master Genealogist, or have thoughts on those or other programs?

I've also found several recent reviews at a couple of websites, but I'm unsure of the depth of the reviewers' interest and experience in genealogy and whether there might not be any hidden biases.

One review site is at
