I didn't realize you couldn't consider partitions/Linux...

OK that shoots my theory to pieces.... While I said "little" or no
administration, OS/400 does require "some" admin functions but I
stick with the term "very little" compared to any typical Unix box...

I have had many customers who's box required NO administration and
they run fine for years at a time.... Remember, we only hear about
"select' problems on the list and often times, what we hear are very
unique and unusual problems. This certainly doesn't represent the
vast majority of users....
