"Ancient review, uninformed comment"
How about a review of a car by someone just learning how to drive ... today? The review is almost two years old; it's hard to believe it is even relevant. The Professional version of the software has many advanced features.
Windows does have something similar, but it is far more primitive than DNS.
If you are willing to put some effort into it, you can work wonders with DNS. The idea that it is 80% effective, as the review implies, is absurd. If that were the case the reviewer should have advocated that it be thrown into the trash. To a certain extent, you train the software and the software trains you. If it isn't very accurate, that means that you and it need more practice. The software is quite amazing once you get it working; for example, I read many chapters of a book using DNS and the name of the main character was Jaak -- that's right, with two a's. Just by correcting the spelling a few times, the program started spelling what would normally be written Jack as Jaak. It is very intelligent. Now it only needs intelligent reviewers.
