I too have had experience with this company, and the BABY/36 
product was excellent. However, they really nickel and dime you to 
death on little things. I have had problems with their support. Mind 
you, its been a couple of years, and I have no idea what the 400 
product was like. I 'assume' it was as good as the 36.

 I think that their runtime is $650 (maybe $700).  The development is
between $3500 and 4000.

 I have used their products since the early to mid '80s.  I even did some
conversion projects on their Baby/34 product.  Their Baby/36 used to be
good, but my experience is that in the Windows environment it leaves much
to be desired.

 Their support used to be very good to excellent.  Now, don't even bother.
If you need more details contact me in private email.
