Gramcord for Windows is better than anything else that I have seen in the
Windows world for searches that involve complex grammatical conditions. It
isn't quite as easy to use as the Mac version, and it doesn't look as good
as the Mac version, and some things are less convenient to use, but it is a
very powerful and good program.

If I had a Mac and a PC I would go with the Mac version, but if I had only a
Windows machine I would have no qualms about buying Gramcord.
