I am not saying this is good or bad but as a feedback in addition to
what Phil provided:

I never learned to use -xi- and am not really looking forward to
margins or factor variable. I will probably end up avoiding it as long
as I can. My guess is that it will turn out for me like Stata
graphics, which is great but greatly complicated. I have a pile of
do-files stashed somewhere but I just don't use them unless I really
and absolutely have to, which means I currently do most of my graphs
in Excel. It's clunky but good enough for most outlet and doesn't eat
up my time.
