[Herb Sevush] "I understand that time spent assigning roles can pay dividends in many ways and also that using the timeline index is not laborious, however to deny that tracks have any organizational advantages whatsoever seems a bit extreme.

The thing is, nobody's saying that tracks have NO advantages. .

Just that those advantages may actually have less importance than they once did before something like Roles was available to do a huge part of the work that tracks used to have to do.

You're conditioned to "seeing" tracks. So the lack of that feels like a loss. Most of us get that - and respect it.

But you also have to see now that there are increasing numbers of guys who have lived with Tracks for the bulk of their careers, who've now gone "trackless" via X and honestly feel that instead of losing capabilities - they've actually gained new capabilities worth far more than what they've lost.

Doesn't make it Gospel. But it certainly is worth noting. That's all.
