Adam,

Back in my days as an insurance pgmr, PMSC was, and is, a four letter word. I 
am surprised (not really)that they are straying away from a M$ solution. Two 
years ago they were in bed with M$ and was to be moving their software off of 
the 400/iSeries. (Though it was written in Cool2E generated Cobol ... yuk!)
