Designer is based upon wxPython and requires it to execute.  However form 
files it creates are ran by gnue-forms which has support for multiple UI 
types such as wxPython and even curses.  Our curses support is based on a 
almost completely re-written python curses library known as NSTTI.  There are 
still some features missing from this library that have prevented our curses 
driver from being feature complete.

gnue-forms is inspired by Oracle Forms.  A few of used the older, text based 
version of the product and really liked it.  However we felt it had some 
flaws so we have attempted to make a better product.  In some areas we far 
exceed that product, in others we're still behind a bit.  If you could 
possibly explain your reasons for rejecting Oracle Forms we could then 
explain any differences in gnue-forms.

Take Care,
