  Well I think I've seen this about enough times.  I don't question
the quality of your product but you are comparing KIA to Dodge.  Your
product appears to support (I checked the web site) a) Terminal
emulation, b) Printer emulation, c) File transfer. Thats it!? What
about the rest? How cum you don't support Operations navigator, or ops
console??   What no ODBC Driver? No Incoming remote command? How about
Data Queue support? What languages do you support besides english, any
double byte support?  Can I get automatic updates from the AS/400 or
use this to update other code, such as VRPG?  Is your product
garanteed to be compatable with every future OS/400 release ON THE DAY
IT SHIPS?

  Don't get me wrong, I have never used your product and there may be
features I missed on the web. Also it may be a great fit for many
users, and be a rock solid full featured emulator.  You CANNOT,
however, compare the two products and claim to come out on top because
you have no match for over half the features.  You CANNOT represent
your product as a replacement for Client Access, rather you compete
with Personal Communications.  (Which by the way has an OS/2 version,
do you?)
