I haven't done any testing myself yet, but if it is so, it's pretty ...
ehm .... Our company paind 700 USD for /Command, which does not seem to
be up-to-date enough to compete with free implementation? I think that
once DocKimbel releases his free FastCGI protocol, someone else does
ODBC library wrapper and there is no reason anymore for anyone to buy
/Command, as everything else is in View/Pro ... ;-) ... ah .... I forgot
there is no Core/Pro, so Unix users would still be required to buy
Command, because of that X11 gfx thing ....
