Yes, marginally. The margin related to (maybe) being able to run the app without a Java runtime. The exclusive group or RAD users is not small but severely distributed so quite hard to reach. Misused spreadsheets for example are competitors too. There's always room for IT projects without any reasonable budget assigned. PS: And I am unsure why would the LV claim there's no client-server architecture in such RAD tools if all database engines (but SQLite) have always been client-server. Maybe it's about the app and GUI on the server side?
