How about the cost of ownership reports, bring up needing training for all
the programmers for the new platform, and the numerous things that the AS400
can do. Also you save the cost of needing to purchase a enterprise level
database.

(sound of a fuse leading to a huge bang in background...)
I have a friend on another AS/400 site, but the 'powers that be' want him
to ditch the AS/400 box and go Unix (at least they didn't suggest XP!!!)
What arguments can he give so that he keeps the little black box we know,
love and trust?
A V5R1 + Linux installation isn't an option, he needs to be able to
deliver an argument based on what he's got now in V4R5.
