Let's see...

While the AS/400 is a sturdy little beast there are some that would want to 
code 
RPG at home on a percieved cheaper box.  And judging by how long California 
Software (and others) has stayed in business with Baby/36 and Baby/400; there 
probably is a market.

I don't know how viable this all is.  I've wondered about the Baby products and 
others because of the following:  Comm programming, API's, CL functions used, 
CGI programming, etc.  Little hard to get all of this.  Maybe they do, I don't 
know.
