SCOTT! Wow I'm surprised at this thread how many people love Scott over Nexgen. Damn! Prophet/Nexgen will do whatever the heck you program it to and those menus go DEEP. BUT those touch screens we all got used to and the hot keys on Scott were the Best! As a morning show host there is nothing better than getting to an element with 2 touches of a touch screen and no need to touch a mouse or keyboard.

The only one I have used and that I'm familiar with is SAM. It's a good system. It's the only one that they use at CMS. (Colorado Media School)

I've only used a few since I've been fortunate enough to stay at my stations a long time. Enco has a great interface and tons of features, but they treat their customers like beta testers and you have to pay for support to get fixes for bugs they introduce into the system with each upgrade. We've tended to settle on as stable a release as we can and then cancel our support for a couple years until there's enough new features to make it worth the investment/risk.
Simian is good for very simple small operations, but there is better/more stable out there for the price. For very small operations/small college/webcasters, I found Station Playlist to be very stable with a decent amount of features.
