How right you are.

What a joke.

Ran a lot of GUI stuff on that 34, eh? Oh ... and video ... audio .. and, 
of course, supported 200 users? Yeah. And what about that Internet server 
on that S/34?  Can't forget that.

Sheesh ... if you want to run an NT Server like a S/34, it'll EASILY do 
24x7. So will Novell ... Linux ... even DOS for crying out loud.


Let's see here (looking at front page of InfoWorld) ... hmmmm ... this 
major publishing company is saving $700,000 EVERY YEAR by dumping their 
AS/400's for NT?? Hmmmm...

Different needs require different OS'es. NT's not for everything ... but 
neither is OS/400.

Peace,
