Decision Chart

Which Version Should I Choose: On-Demand or Distributed?

The following chart is intended to help you decide whether the distributed version or the on-demand version of a particular e-Classifieds edition is right for you. Next to each key feature or requirement, we have indicated whether it is available in either the on-demand or the distributed version of e-Classifieds. As you can see from the chart below, for the vast majority of people, the on-demand version is almost always the better choice. This is especially true now that the distributed versions are no longer being actively developed, and the on-demand versions far exceed the distributed versions in terms of features, interface, and other aspects.
