Now that is someone who has really been scared off stata8. On a more serious
note Lee, apart from issues with Graphs, I am quite impressed with stata 8.
I havent experienced problems with the list command (may be due to the fact
that I am currently working with small data sets). And yes, the graphs take
a while, however, imho, when they do come out, they are certainly worth the
wait (I will quickly add that I dont use graphs often).

In a nutshell, you might wanna reconsider (especially with upgrades coming
up every 2 weeks or so, who know, speed may soon be a problem of the past)
