This is why I often call GUI applications 'grey screen' applications.  
At least on green screen you can cut and paste.
Try copying from an error window on grey screen and pasting it into a 
full text search.  The only thing I can paste it into is Paintbrush.

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.
