MOVE Software for Kinematic Modeling

One of the more interesting players in the geologic modeling software game looks to be Midland Valley and their MOVE software.  Designed by and for structural geologists, the purpose of MOVE is to construct kinematic structural models by (apparently) back-calculating the original formation environment, then applying faulting, folding, and other deformations to the model to arrive at a final interpolated structure-controlled regime.  This model can then be used for such tasks as geotechnical design for mines or identifying drilling targets based on structurally-controlled mineralization.

More information on MOVE is available at their website, including a 30 day evaluation copy.  It would be interesting to know how this package compares with a more standard geotechnical/structural software like FLAC3D?
