Actually, no. "Future Former" would indicate that we have Horizon 
now and would later not. Instead, we've stubbornly held on to the 
one system that actually has all the functionality required by our 
consortium -- the state of the art Dynix Classic ILS. And I don't 
mean that sarcastically, it's still the best in terms of overall 

Horizon 8.x held out the promise to come close enough that we had 
signed a contract to be "Future Operators" of it. And now, that's 
our former state. =)
