You do get to that final point where you just need more raw speed... If they continue to pile layers and layers of additional software into the base OS, they have to overcome that with more speed... (TCP/IP comes to mind)... I saw a performance chart on TCP/IP on a 400 and the really neat curves on the processor as you add more users...(nobody pays any attention to that either) Just think... with a few more additional features, OS/400 will get to be as big(or bigger) than MVS... Now we are talking chilled water processors... Isn't V4R4 now over 2gb ????(with various features) +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
