Y'know, in looking at the original poster's post, the first thing that came to my mind is that he's not exactly thrilled with having to use Robot and is looking for additional tools to help him complete his testing. Not from the standpoint that he wants to replace Robot with WinRunner or some such thing, rather, he wants to pull in some additional tools that can be used to complement Robot.
In any case, shouldn't we be asking the original poster what kinds of things he's wanting to do and how Robot is not meeting his needs? Might we find some additional features of Robot that the original poster hadn't been exposed to that would fill the gaps in his testing?
Just a different spin on things.

Of course not.
It's simply a sign that they don't feel they'll get enough revenue returned for the cost of placing a banner ad here.
