What is the answer for those willing to buy Express for their organisation but e.g. to fill conference messages into local .dbf database files, and it requires shell and/or library access? Do you think Link/Pro client for Express users would be of no value? What do you think about it?

Aha - View desktop? So no chance of removing the unneaded code at will? Could View desktop be put simply into separate script file? It would even allow to develop/repair bugs it while not requiring ppl to re-download the whole View product. Now I don't understand what is the difference in Link/World and View desktop in its purpose?

OK, but View kernel and VID will be the same thru all your GUI enabled products, right? btw: View/Command not planned? Thanks, -pekr-
