More Bible software

I realize that there are a bunch of Bible software programs out there that don't deal with original language texts (Ellis, iLumina, QuickVerse, WORDSearch, low end versions of PCStudy Bible or Logos, etc.) or try to provide English work arounds using Strong's for those who don't know Greek or Hebrew. I really don't have time (or money) to look at all such programs, and it appears that anyone reading this blog probably isn't interested in them either. I won't be commenting on them unless they offer some remarkable resource.
Bible Software Review Weblog notes the release of a new version 5 of Biblesoft's PCStudy Bible. Their "Professional Reference Library" edition is geared toward scholars using the original languages. I certainly wish Biblesoft well, and I think competition has been very good in the Bible software field to promote improvements, but I'm having trouble imagining that Biblesoft is going to be able to get much of a foothold in a field dominated by Logos, BibleWorks, and Accordance. Am I wrong?
