I have however been able to open an xterm from the iSeries with PASE in
this life. It is truly incredible what is hidden in the corners of this
system.

Really? How did you do that? I'd really want to know. Can you provide any more details?

By the way, have you tried cygwin? It runs Linux on top of Windows. No virtualization or stuff like that. The only problem is that it is huge.

Yeah, that sounds exciting, but I haven't tried that yet. I have used the Cygwin's X11 client (server) on my PC. That would mean a fourth alternative to iSeries user interfaces (the other three are green screens, web, and thick client).
I have used the WeirdX java thingie in a previous life
(http://www.jcraft.com/weirdx/) to get an X server without all the
"install this and that and boot Knoppix in vmware" etc.
