IIRC, it was crap -- something like a hundred megs of bloated
X-windows-only Java bytecode that required a minimum of 256M of RAM and
an 800MHz P3 CPU to run at all.  Had they made a small, can-work-with-X-
but-also-dumps-data-out-to-stdout C program with more modest
requrements, it would have been more popular.
