Welcome to the Forum. Massive upgrade from the cartridges!
What new softwares?
Try the BB soap forum for great adviceFound a a cool store in downtown St. Louis called Dapper Gents that carries some nice shaving products and gear. I wanted to "touch" my next purchase and picked up some GFT Almond Cream and Sandalwood soap. Plus some GFT Spanish Leather aftershave that is great. The cream and soap are the "new" software. Need some work on lathering the soap but the cream is very nice.
