    Good for ad-hoc projects, not necessarily for long-term organization


    Allows working with substantial amount of data
    Powerful yet relatively simple
    Scripting allows to re-apply past actions


    Doesn't seem to be actively supported/maintained
    Old interface makes it unintuitive to deal with files
    No real automation features
