We have several Wyse 150's inhouse (replacing Wyse 60's).
So far, we have experienced no problems.  We are using them in 
native mode and still using the Wyse 60 termcaps.  We
are running WordPerfect Office, WordPerfect, SCO Professional,
FoxBase 2.1+, RealWorld, and a whole slew of other things.
Have experienced no problem to date (About 2 months now).
The Wyse 150's are about 70% compatible according to Wyse
tech support.  What commands they have are identical to the
Wyse 60, they just don't have all the extra commands.
Hope this helps.
