To elaborate a bit on Andy Law's comments:
I use eXodus, and it works pretty well. I agree that WPI is pretty much
an abomination (whew, that's a bit harsh). Steve Smith, the developer of
GDE, the Genetic Data Environment, is now working for GCG and it appears
that WPI in its next incarnation will me more GDE-like in implementation.
This should be a big plus, if you can wait 6-9 months.
In the meantime, my advice is to try to find a X-terminal and try out WPI
before buying an X emulator. If you are a power-GCG user already, it
might be of some help. If not spend a few days (weeks?) trying to learn
the command line interface for GCG. You'll need to know how it works if
you are going use WPI.
