Someone mentioned here recently, that in an upcoming release we would be able to specify ASCII data in our fields instead of EBCDIC or the universal code.  Would that make for a more interesting text-based screen?

I find it interesting that the  AS/400 vs. NT topic becomes a 5250 text vs. GUI topic.  They really aren't the same thing excepting that we see it that way.

AS/400 can do GUI and text while  NT seems to be pretty much GUI-centric.   That says to me the AS/400 has broader capabilities, doesn't it?  What would happen if the AS/400 green screen actually had a pale gray background? or if there were more fixed-fonts to choose from, even if they were purchased add-ons from 3rd party?

One of the interesting things about gui applications is that most people
who use them a lot rely on keystroke combinations rather than the mouse
to do things they do frequently.
