It was an interesting concept for its time (originally called InternetWorks
by BookLink before AOL bought it ... and made some major downgrades in the
interface) ... but I stop short of calling it a joke.  It's just (IMHO) old
and a little behind the times (which is pretty easy to do considering the
rate that Web technology is blasting along).

I wouldn't have minded the AOL interface if they had decided on a way to
(easily) allow alternative internet clients into their interface (don't like
the built-in browser?  Cool ... use something else!), but such is not the
case ... and I'm one of the odd ones in that I don't personally care for the
'canned interface suites', since I've not met a suite that I really liked).

I've not played with GNN (AOLs internet-only solution) ... does anyone know
if it suffers the same problem?
