Hi Jim,

Why not? They're web applications, just like QU2 is. They show that it
is possible to make a quick and snappy web interface (even over WAN) and
that IBM is just too lazy to do this with QU2.

And a mail client is just a fancy way to access a database which stores
mails.

I had high expectations for QU2 - I expected IBM to set an example on
how a new generation System i application should look, and serve as a
leading example for ISVs. Wasn't the case.

It is most certainly not snappy or responsive like e.G. Google Mail,
Google Reader, Microsoft Outlook Web Access 2007, etc. pp. But one
could
probably work with it without going completely insane.

Why compare page load time to applications that have nothing to do with
data analysis?
