:>I received this email from George Brennan at Starnet, who makes X-win

I have received the same email but did _NOT_ ask for any information about 
this product. I'm currently running FTP software's EntranX over either the 
Trumpet Winsock or PC/TCP 3.0 - without any problem. In the view of the 
upcoming Windows upgrade I would however not recommend to buy any 16 
bit Windows product at the moment.
The other XWindow server we are using at our site is PMX for OS/2. This 
package is running over IBM's TCP/IP stack (TCP/IP 2.0 or Warp Connect). 
Personnaly I prefer working with PMX as it fully supports the preemptive 
multitasking capabilities of OS/2.
