Well, the company I work for has used this program for years, and so
has 1,000 or more client data files 'invested' in its continued
use. Not to mention the screaming which would result if the
secretaries had to learn new tricks. Until 4 years ago, they released
a DOS version along with the windoze one, which worked perfectly under
dosemu. But someone decided to go single-platform.

I am in contact with one of the support staff who runs linux at
home. He has promised to see what he can do. If I hear back from him,
I'll mention the name change....
