    It's there, it's the option called "other" :rofl3:

    For myself, V-planner, exclusively. I have "e" turned off and conservatism set to zero.

    Vplanner primarily and Decoplanner to look at the M-Value relationship graphs.

    V planner; I don't care about "M" values.

    I use FreePlanner, which generates VPM and Buhlman plans. I then compare those with a RD plan, average the time out, add in deep stops where necessary, move time to account for gas switches and the oxygen window, and then shape the curve.

    At home I prefer to run my computers on Ubuntu Linux. I can run Deco Planner through Wine. I'd be surprised if there is no Wine equivalent for Mac. I also run MV Planner native in Linux.

    One thing to note is that the default setting for GF in MV Planner is 80/30 vs 80/35 in Deco Planner. I do not know what is the default setting for the OSTC, but for my Shearwater Predator the default setting is also 80/35. So there will be some variances specially if you don't change the default GF. When I set them all at the same GF results are reasonably similar.
