GirlFriend 3.1
Last year, my friend upgraded his GirlFriend 3.1 to GirlFriendPlus 1.0
(marketing name: Fiancee1.0). Recently he upgraded Fiancee1.0 to Wife1.0
and it’s a memory hogger, it has taken all his space; and Wife1.0 must be
running before he can do anything. Although he did not ask for it, Wife1.0
came with Plug-Ins such as MotherInLaw and BrotherInLaw.

Some features I’d like to see in the Upcoming GirlFriend 4.0...
       - A "Don’t remind me again" button
       - Minimize button
       - Shutdown feature
       - An install shield feature so that Girlfriend 4.0 can be completely
 uninstalled if so desired (so you don‘t lose cache and other objects)
       - "Abort" button (O.K. that one‘s pretty bad - but had to say it)
 I tried running girlfriend 2.0 with girlfriend 1.0 still installed, they
 tried using the same i/o port and conflicted. Then I tried to uninstall
 girlfriend 1.0 but it didn‘t have an uninstall program. I tried to
 uninstall it by hand, but it put files in my system directory. Another
 thing that sucks in all versions of girlfriend that I‘ve used is that it
 is totally "object oriented" and only supports hardware with gold plated
 contacts.
 ***** BUG WARNING ********
 Wife 1.0 has an undocumented bug. If you try to install Mistress 1.1
 before uninstalling Wife 1.0, Wife 1.0 will delete MSMoney files before
 doing the uninstall itself. Then Mistress 1.1 will refuse to install,
 claiming insufficient resources.
