Now, I've seen NT ads (in print) and I don't recall any of them saying
they'll solve all my problems. NT isn't an application. It isn't a
computer either, but that really is beside the point. 

Chris, this may be the whole point, imho.  MS has an extensive and broad
media campaign of pretty smiling happy faces saying "Where do you want to
go today?"  The attitude projected is one of fun, fast response times,
complete user control, unlimited drill-down, drill-up, and import-export.

I do agree however that the AS/400 conmmunity has been derelict in
providing glitz and magic.  Client Access is an example of that, I think. 
Its cumbersome, slow, and unpredictable.  It's hard to install and the PTF
battle is unending.  Even when its right its boring.  Not cut&paste, no
un-do, no "find", no meaningful toolbar.  Boring, boring.
