I accept all that you say excepting with the issue of appearance.  Now that
I've seen shadow line windows, pushbuttons, radio buttons, subfiles w/scroll
bar, and clickable selections I am convinced that green screen does not have
to be a pig.

I am convinced we have the ability to be more competitive with text-based
screens than we are allowing ourselves to be.
