Since I'm a wife myself, I can tell you that it's a great idea. If it doesn't work though, you can try to play the "well look at all of the money that we spend on your hair/nails/shoes" card, and go for the guilt... you deserve it!
That is a good one, Alan. I only have one thing to say - "It is easier to receive forgiveness than permission!"
My wife is not very tech or music stuff savvy, She doesn't understand my affinity of computers, gadgets and gizmos and orchestral libraries - THOUGH - once she heard GPO in action, she started coming up with a list of my older compositions which she felt would be great to re-do with GPO. She is a musician herself, but it isn't her passion. She usually rolls her eyes at me - I am a nut.

I Asked most of the forum members to Convince my wife about getting GPO. She gave in and seems impressed by what it has to offer. I've just mow received GPO and installing as I type. Can't wait to get started and learn this impressive program. Looking forward to give some demos when I have the time.
