Regarding a "native GUI" for OS/400, I've always felt that if IBM had pushed development on the 5250 data stream, and kept it at least on a parity with, or perhaps even ahead of, the X-terminal data stream, and if they'd provided adequate APIs and display file keywords to drive it, and kept SDA updated, (instead of [as with the 5250 WP mode, and MI] doing everything they could to keep outside programmers OUT of 5250 graphics and InfoWindow II mouse support), they'd HAVE HAD a native GUI for the 400 TEN YEARS AGO!
