NONE of the contest programs out there are completely bug free.  The serial
port networking is solid as a rock...if you have it set up properly and you 
are running version 9.2x (the last few versions) and it's rare when there is
a version that doesnt actually network properly.  Compared to previous 
generations, CT9.23 is relatively bug-free and stable.

CT is probably not as easy to setup properly as NA (dont know about TR) as it
requires the use of TSR's for the COM ports, DVP, etc.  However it is a more
efficient program and if you read the docs, it's should be pretty easy to get
your network going if you have good ports and complete/shielded null modem
