I have to agree with that I think.  I'd add that I am happy that the
third-party market does such a good job  -  I worry that IBM can get
caught up in the proprietary trap if it gives a knock-out punch to
third-party firms.

btw, has anyone tried out Netscape Communicator's IBM connection yet?  The
java applet that allows any Netscape 4.0 user to connect to get a green
screen on any AS/400 running tcp/ip and on the internet?  It's a little
cumbersome and it is slow but it means that any PC anywhere can reach an
AS/400 without any special software on either the AS/400 or on the PC.  No
Perletalk, no client access, nothing but Netscape and an internet

CA is CONSTANTLY behind the 3rd party connectivity
vendors in features, useability, and ease of installation.  We're just
fed up with it!
