It's funny. In the shops I worked in everyone wanted their reports in GUI
and everything had to be converted to Excel. Nobody wanted printed reports.
Everyone wanted GUI front ends. "Why can't I have GUI screens like I get on
my PC applications.". Now making that happen was damn near impossible but
that was always the request and I don't know how many AS/400 that ceased
being because the management wanted GUI applications and the AS/400 people
told them they couldn't do that.
