I understand what you are saying. But, I disagree that the minimums are for CODE/400 as opposed to RSE.
In my mind WDSc is one thing CODE is another. The fact that they come on the same DVD is immaterial, they are two separate products. Even if IBM does list CODE as a "feature" of WDSc.
Nor does IBM push CODE as the tool to use for server development. The opposite is true, LPEX and RSE are being pushed.
If you're correct and IBM is pulling the minimums from CODE, then that needs to be explicitly stated along with realistic minimums for RSE/LPEX.
