MUSHclient  is  a  good  client,  though  still  shareware,  it  isn't
"crippleware"  and  has  most  of  the  functionality  and none of the
crashes of zMud.

Plans  or  not,  if  he  releases  the  code into public domain, and if
Borland  (Inprise?)  lives  up  to  their  promise  to release a linux
version of delphi, a linux version is likely.  :)  So many people want
a  "good"  mud client for linux.  The text based ones (tt98, mcl) have
gotten  pretty  good  and  there are a couple tcl-based clients, but a
good  hardcode  client  for  X  is needed.  Tcl is dawg-slow (personal
opinion).
