What the press say about RagTime…
“RagTime has a blend of functionality that covers business needs better
than any integrated application I know. It is QuarkXPress with Word, Excel
and Canvas embedded within. However, the big pay back is that you can use
RagTime for virtually every need in the office.” — Paul Stary, Video
