I've been looking for a database package for a Unix system, and am considering
Informix-SE among others.  Originally I wasn't considering WingZ as a front end
because I was told that it was somewhat limited as to what kind of queries it
could process.  For us, the main point of using a relational database is to
process complex SELECT statements--the description of WingZ as a "spreadsheet"
doesn't make it sound relevant to us.

On the other hand, I think we'd be better off with a completely X-windows based
GUI interface, rather than a character-based interface.  Hence, could anyone
comment on the ease-of-use of WingZ, and its flexibility in regard to SQL
queries, compared to Informix-4GL?

Thank you in advance,

Bill Thompson
