I agree, IBM had gotten so concerned with profit, they have lost site of the customer. Their arriogance will be their undoing. They are not going to allow system state. They might as well go out side and stop the wind too. How will they stop someone from writing in Power PC commands? Or do they think they are the only ones that can write power PC commands? They cannot give us easy ways to develop, unless it has been made by someone else. This is like the government that says we are going to protect you, but when something happens all they do is restrict you from protecting yourself. Like many recent IBM decisions is designed to control us and make them more money, instead of giving us the newer tools to work with. Once in the past we did not have indexed files. It was a pain to keep them sorted and play the high low game to find records. IBM steped up to the place and created Logical files on the iseries. Thery are very easy to use and very efficient. Excecially compared to what we had. Now businesses need to communicate with each other. How do we have to do that? A non IBM Http Server, with a lot of overhead, XML which the DOM, is crazy to understand. Then we have to use another computers company program (Java from SUN) Use the HTTP server, then go through PASE to use unix commands? After all the overhead and compatability has been done, now there is no power for the application. Write it in sockets, with the XML parser. It can be done, but not by a beginning programmer. So most companies cannot do it, then they cannot communicate. Then a PC companies annouces they can do it easily, and now the companies flock to the PC solution because it has been promised to be cheaper and easier. To IBM: Give us the new tools included in the operating system, not programs that you disconiue in 2 years, But programs we can move forward in this business world. Give us innovation equal to the level of innovation that existed when the 38 was introduced. Quite trying to control us for profit sake, and start innovating, get off your butt and give us new procucts that are revolutionary as the 38 origionally was, or prepare your grave. And P.S. straighten out your Hardware maintenance administration, before we do it for you by going elsewhere. Come on, IBM get with the progeam or we will have to fire you. Harry Now IBM either do that or turn the Microsoft PC back on that has the Beyond web site.
