But yes I do think it is cowardly. I mean the authors name, upon closer
inspection is buried at the bottom amid a puppy dogs bio? At the very
least have the gumption to speak "your" mind. 
And I get so sick and tired of reading how this or that is the death
knell of the AS/400 (and or RPG). Remember how java was touted "the
programing language of the future"? How java was supposed to supplant
RPG as the midrange language of choice?
RPG is still around, so is the 400, and I may be wrong but isn't IBM
bringing back support for Netware? So, again IMHO, the article is
neither funny nor right on. It is just another MicroSoft drumbeater
thumping his cheats.
