The problem is, each iSeries is shipped with the physical capability to perform the 5250 job stream functions. But IBM puts a software governor in place to assure that the customer is not using more than they have paid license for. So a customer can "upgrade" to more capability without changing hardware. This opens a world of perception issues. People try to compare this with buying simple hardware or whatever. This is where all the crying and whining comes in. If the machine shipped with an actual physical limitation there would be far less complaining in this area. >Adam Lang >Systems Engineer >Rutgers Casualty Insurance Company >http://www.rutgersinsurance.com > -- Chris Rehm email@example.com Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 1 John 4:7
