Google Trends http://bit.ly/a2PwP is how I’d decide.

Peter,
That’s an intriguing idea. I especially like the breakdown by region and also by city. Once again, your knowledge of all things Google overshadows mine. 😉

I am already a Logos user. Have upgraded to Logos4. Luv it. That being said, Logos has now ported to Mac, so the field is a little broader in that respect.
Personally, I’ve no experience with BibleWorks. There are features to Logos that I never use, so it’s enough for me.
Balance your desired features against the program before getting advice that might prejudice you either way….if that makes any sense.
Then you can get the advice that may influence your decision.
My experience would lead me to use Logos on a Mac,if I had a Mac. I wanna get away from Windows. May actually virtualize XP on UbuntuCE soon.
Just some thoughts.

Jason,
I’m glad to hear you’ve had a good experience with LOGOS 4. So far the videos and screen shots I’ve seen look amazing. Add the iPhone app into the mix and it’s to die for. 😉 For the time being I make due with my tiny electronic library in LOGOS 3 and continue utilizing BibleWorks 8 for all of my Greek and Hebrew studies. If you’re considering a move to MAC, then Accordance is another option to consider in addition to LOGOS. I know quite a few people who had good success running the Windows version of LOGOS 3 on their MACS via parallels before the native MAC version was released. I imagine it would run OK in a virtualized Windows environment on a Linux system as well. For that matter, BibleWorks 8 should run OK in a virtualized Windows environment too. However, I haven’t talked to anybody who’s actually done it. Anybody have any success stories they’d care to share of running BibleWorks in a virtualized Windows environment? Thanks for your input. Have a blessed day!

Have had trouble getting a Linux installation to dual boot with Windows7.
Will have to read more before I try it and report back.

Jason,

Have you thought of trying to run it in a virtual machine like Sun’s Virtualbox. It’s a nice free virtual machine solution for a workstation. You can learn more at http://www.virtulbox.org.

I was hoping to dual boot Windows and Linux until I learned Linux enough to be able to configure it as I wished. I would set things up in Linux to virtualize with Win4Lin. At this time it doesn’t seem to be working out.

I don’t know if I’d base a decision off of google. Google trend e-sword and logos and you’ll find e-sword blows it away, yet e-sword original language study is limited at best.

I use both. I have Bibleworks 8 upgraded from 7 and I own Libronix 3 Gold cross graded to Logos 4 Gold and have purchased many resources for Logos as well as a few for Bibleworks. I like and use both. Get both if ou can if not think about what you want to do and how much you have to spend.
