A few observations.

QTrax requires a special client. Not that that would stop anyone
from downloading and installing it.

Well, it would stop Linux and Max users. The software is an 11 MB
.EXE file, beta release. Windows XP + Vista only. Oh, and you must
have Microsoft Dotnet Framework 2.0 installed.

IIRC someone on Link eschewed the whole DotNet mess when it was
required for some other product. All too hard and messy.

Even thought the Qtrax site says available only in the USA for
beta testing, I can download the beta here in Aus. I didn't complete
the download since I cannot the EXE file except in a completely
sandboxed virtual PC which kind of defeats the intent.
