Aside from the fact that the Cornell version (free) doesn't do color, I
prefer the interface that White Pine ($70 with docs) has. Little things
like the way the phone book works make a big difference, at least to me.
The White Pines version is a little less cumbersome.

Is it worth buying it? Well, for me the decision was made the first time
there was something on a reflector in color that I wanted to see and
couldn't because I was using the Cornell version. It's really up to you
as to which version you prefer and whether you feel that color is
something you'll want to be able to see (or send, for that matter).
