True, you can manage it from green screen - but yuck!  If you have a
system that doesn't require green screen type interface (meaning
screen-at-a-time displays, including web displays) why be confined to such
a rotten interface?  It seems to me (and I think everyone knows by now
what my biases are) that it would be better to have an interface that
doesn't have such a limitation and can emulate one that does.  That way
you can have your cake and eat it, too.

Of course *programming* for green screen is great.  I just think *using*
it sucks.

And I have no idea why anyone would ever run W2K or WinXP or Win whatever,
either on an iSeries or not.
