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 ;)
