You think tn5250 looks better than x5250?  Now I have to kill you :)

Seriously though, I don't mind. What don't you like about x5250?


I'll chime in here (adding that I use x5250 daily for the many features). It's been mentioned on the list already that the vertical spacing is problematic. All windows appear with blank horizontal spaces between the lines.

If I run x5250 and xt5250 side by side, x5250 starts off as a better size (without me altering any fonts.) xt5250 gives me the option to resize so someone who comes up behind me can read the text. I don't have that option with x5250 which means people have to lean over my shoulder to read anything on my screen.

You'll also note from my picture that xt5250 displays the session name from my tn5250rc file whereas x5250 displays the host name. Not a big deal on a daily basis, but not great when posting public screen shots ;)
