MMB is agressively pushing TEAMate as the "premier" Unix based BBS
system in the country.  My inquiries netted me two copies of PR
materials and several phone calls about the product.  The package looks
complete, with a full-fledged conferencing system, file support, and
full configuration management.  There is a (MSDOS) client program for
it called TEAMterm, that they say is freely distributable, but I
don't know where there is a copy on the net.  I had some problems with
the manual, which was obviously written by/for someone with absolutely
no knowledge of the Unix underpinnings.  The system is full screen,
form oriented, and uses the Unix termcap/terminfo libraries.

Prices are steep(*), a single cpu intel license starts at $2000, and the
full package starts at $5500.  More users bring the cost up rapidly,
with an "unlimited users" full package totalling $63,000.  (Price list,
july 1, 1992)  Systems supported include: Intel, Sun, HP-UX, DEC (RISC),
IBM RS/6000, ATT 3b2, Sequent, DG, Silicon Graphics, and Tandem (UNIX).
[Sequent 4+ cpu starts at 15,000, full: 40,200.  Most systems are going
to be 4000-7500/12,800-21,900.]

* - recent mail from TEAMate folk say that a new lower cost (8-line)
entry-level version is available starting around $2000.00.
Additionally, they report new educational pricing and discounts.

A GUI client/server version is planned for showing in August 1993.

User support is friendly and knowledgable, I called to clarify the
ability to include Usenet messages.  It would take a programmer a bit of
time to do it, but it seems easy enough.
