Dave - How did you come to this conclusion? It seems completely unwarranted - option 25 of PDM is very powerful - and its extension in WDSC is even better.
What native capabilities are you thinking of?
Now I challenge you to "find" anything in a SQL Server table from Windows Search - but you can do that easily with PDM option 25 - which is really FNDSTRPDM - do NOT be fooled into thinking that you can search only for strings.

Seems like the native OS "find" capabilities are WAYYY outdated and not anything
like the Windoz Search function. And it also sounds like one must depend on
utilities created for other OS's or some other vendor's tools to accomplish a
simple global function like search global for a string which is native in most
other OS's. If true, it doesn't bode well for the IBM i. How sad.
