I believe the basic premise is valid though. What ported product has a better reputation on the 400 than on it's "native" hardware? Does SAP sell more "reliable" 400s than Unices? Lotus (Domino)? I haven't heard of any, and the cross platform PC ports (Mac/Windows) generally have lesser reputations as well.
