I switched to AbsoluteTelnet after getting very frustrated with PCXWare approximately two years ago. PCXWare was a very "heavy" application that took a long time to load and also conflicted with other desktop applications such as Lotus Notes, resulting in frequent GPFs. I'm very pleased with AbsoluteTelnet. It is easy to use, is quite robust, is not a heavy application, and does not conflict with any of my other desktop applications. -- Ron Menich - Talus Solutions
