about MapWindow GIS Jun 2011

There are a whole lot of bloated, incoherent, unusable, expensive far beyond the point of obscenity, and/or generally broken GIS utilities out there. MapWindow is not one of them. MWGIS + Shape2Earth plugin made converting ArcGIS shapefiles into georeferenced polylines in KML a task much less horrifying than a creepy-long-haired-asian-girl movie... quite the opposite of ArcGIS Explorer which shall be consumed utterly in the infernal flames of Perdition (if there is any justice in the universe).
