Yes, that's what I've heard as well. I started out with Dektol, as that is what Eastman House recommended. I went through quite a bit of it, then discovered that D76 1:1 works just fine -- and later heard from Nick Brandreth (of Eastman) that he is using D76 now as well. As it is my standard developer for film, I just stuck with it. A little less active, but the results are good.
