Tails Up and Tails Down

Tails Up:

  • Vypress Messenger for JavaTM is FREEWARE - you can always use this program free of charge!

  • Works anywhere with Java 2 - it works in any OS that has Java Virtual Machine installed.

  • Cool high-color interface - Vypress Messenger for JavaTM uses rich, 256-color toolbar buttons, preferences tabs, menus with icons and other "fashion" interface elements!

  • True, OS-independent intranet and Internet communication - Vypress Messenger for JavaTM is fully compatible with Vypress Messenger for Windows. This program uses TCP/IP protocol and allows you to communicate trough ANY TCP/IP based network or Internet.

Tails Down:

  • Very slow JavaTM performance - use Vypress Messenger for JavaTM only if you can't find the "native" version!

  • Bugs! JDK and JFC tend to be a "bug collectors."
  • You need additional software - Vypress Messenger for JavaTM won't work without Java 2 platform (or later).
  • This is a "light" version - Vypress Messenger for JavaTM doesn't match up to the features found in Vypress Messenger for Windows. Some features missed in the Java-version include:
    • Advanced Address Book - the JavaTM version has only a basic contact list
    • Message Filtering - in the JavaTM version, it's not possible to ignore messages from selected users or with certain words
    • No e-mail notification - many Unix systems have built-in tools for this task
