A lot of developers * $3,500 = lotsa $$$. Maybe IBM has a plan...?

I tell/ask every client I get in touch with if they are using WDSC (usually anyways). I think a lot more developers are at least trying WDSC than we think. Here are some stats for the number signed up for the WDSC list (toward bottom) which puts us at 799 of people just listening here. http://www.midrange.com/liststats.htm I think we could safely quadruple that number to maybe 3200? (scientific, I know) That's a lot of developers given how relatively small the iSeries market is. Maybe another good measure would be how many people download updates to WDSC - IBM would have those numbers. Thoughts?

Sounds like IBM will get real earful at > the next Common conference
from programmers. Aside from the dozen or so active posters to this list, WDSCi is essentially unknown to RPG programmers. Unless there's a secret underground of WDSCi users we don't hear from on this list, there won't be a long line howling about the AE situation. --buck -- This is the Websphere Development Studio Client for iSeries (WDSCI-L) mailing list To post a message email: WDSCI-L@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/wdsci-l or email: WDSCI-L-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/wdsci-l.
