Guess the point is: vx cuold be a real mess, with a lot of bugs, but all
those things are relevant, thinking that there would be further patches,
fixes, or even new versions... but, there won't be a new version, neither
a patch, not even an official watcom's web-site! (at least I couldn't find
any) ... So, if you put money on it, you'll lose it... :-( ... and I guess
you won't like that!  ...welcome to the watcom's VX-Rexx funeral! ...
So, I guess that there's a new monopoly on visual rexx programming under
OS/2... choose, VisPro or VisPro... =-) ...

Hope it helps!...
these are my own thoughts... I do only represent to myself... I do not
work for HockWare, not even for Watcom... all the old-well known
disclaimers apply to this letter, including the bad english sorry one...
