Jan, I wrote Buck a longer reply in which I essentially agreed with his, and your, points. I recall the days when the 400 was geared almost exclusively to OS/2, and could barely work with Windung... I don't recall those as being "the good old days". Windoze, by whatever name you call it, is a fact of life. Especially considering M$ has a legal/moral/ethical monopoly. I think I've given a fair number of examples of how good OS/400 and other IBM products are, in prior posts. In fact, I've recently lamented that, in some cases, IBM appears to be sinking to seeing M$ as the standard to beat, rather than prior releases of OS/400. jt | -----Original Message----- | From: email@example.com | [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of Jan Megannon | Sent: Monday, December 03, 2001 6:33 PM | To: email@example.com | Subject: Re: US Navy bets on Win2K | | | Hi Buck, | | I quite agree with you.
