Voice of teacher:

"I really like the clean interface. I think students have an easier time learning and working with your software. I must say, the big advantage of your tool that I like is it's clean and fast! Don't lose that aspect of the application. I'd be willing to sacrifice other features to keep these things you've done so well!" - Teacher from Red River College
