Switching genealogy programs is not a fruitful process

I have discovered that my database is a complete and utter mess, switching programs has not been a fruitful process (for me).  Many moons ago I started out with FTM, them moved to Legacy (which I loved), however now I am Macified I went back to FTM and then switched to Reunion. Sadly between the latter two my files are a MESS, not completely corrupted but well on the way. Mainly all to do with my fastidious sourcing which is now swapped around, or attached to the wrong people.  We won't mention the multiples of duplicates from the dreaded TreeSync (FTM).

There is only one thing for it, I am starting afresh.  From scratch. So now is the perfect time to send me through any updates that need doing, or people to add!  I do believe this is going to be a protracted process.

Now to decide, will I do it in FTM Mac or Reunion or purchase a straight out gedcom program and stick totally to gedcom to save corruptions?

Thoughts welcome!
