I am not trying to be a wise acre, but is this really true?  Does the
AS/400 lack levels of security that are available with NT and SNA?  

I ask this because it seems that everyone is assuming that MS and NT is
where the real reliabilty is but I haven't seen any facts to support that
assumption.   It seems like I hear regular stories about NT's lack of
security, holes, and something called a BSOD.  I wonder if these
weaknesses in fact will cause more damage than a regular straight-up
AS/400 IP address.
