Hopefully this will be written well enough to start a discussion and avoid religious wars. My goal is to fairly hear the experiences and conclusions from those who have already traveled this path.

What works? What has a broad base of support? Where is IBM going with the user interface? How are designers, analysts, and developers moving forward with the i?

I want to develop my own skills to get the job done, and I am seeing far too many choices out there to feel comfortable with my ability to pick the right paths forward. I have spent time working with: VARPG, OS/2, GWT, Java, HTML, JSON, XML, Zend & PHP, EGL, and other offerings. The more I learn, the more uncomfortable I become with my skill at making choices; hence this desire to hear what others have to say.

So, what is _your_ opinion of where the future lies for RPG programmers?
