What you say makes sense.  It supports my contention that we need to do more with green screen.  

I would agree that the GUI interface is more attractive but imho some bosses are beginning to get tired of the PC hamster wheel.   On Friday I was in a client's office and they  are trading out their Sys/36 for a nice new PC network running a software package written in Clipper.  Yes, Clipper.  They've also gotten modern with a 24/7 internet connection.  Now the employees are using company time for their AOL Instant Messenger chats.  At least Solitaire playing is dropping off.

This can not be an appealing battle for managers.  Green screen is the answer, in the end.  <vbg>

It was cool, but the product was a hard sell against PC packages. Since we've
put a real GUI interface over it, it's now selling very well.

If you're going to try to put together a green screen version of gui, I think
you really need to think about this function.
