*why* a non-IBMi tech person should consider or pursue IBMi.
Given that IBM has been steadily abandoning everything about the
platform that differentiates it from other platforms (little things like
5250 data stream and Twinax, as well as big things like native
record-level access, its close integration with RPG, and The RPG Cycle),
and also given as how the latest versions of the OS are always putting
up insulting, patronizing messages in the faces of those still using
terminals and emulators instead of iNav, are there any reasons left?
I mean, other than, "It's not a Unix-type system, and therefore isn't
constantly giving you enough rope to hang yourself (and helping you tie
the knot)" and "It's not WinDoze, and therefore doesn't have security
holes big enough to drive an aircraft carrier through"?
