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. James Rich email@example.com
