Last year, my friend upgraded his GirlFriend3.1 to GirlFriendPlus1.0
(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

- A "Don't remind me again" button
- Minimize button
- Shutdown feature
- An install shield feature so that Girlfriend4.0 can be completely
uninstalled if so desired (so you don't lose cache and other objects)

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 orientated" and only
supported 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.
