Meanwhile there has NEVER been a documented case of any sortsystem
of buffer overrun, virus, or indeed anything else on a native i5/OS
(reaching back to the OS/400 and even CPF days as far as I know).

This challenge is outstanding forever. I guarantee that I will never
securityoff on it. And until then, let's drop the nonsense that Windows
intois equivalent to i5/OS security. That's simply rubbish.
And before some Windows apologist or *nix weenie demands that I hack
their machine, you're missing the point: your machines have ALREADY beencome
hacked. The exploits are numerous and documented and more continue to
down the pike. Meanwhile there has NEVER been a documented case of anysort
of buffer overrun, virus, or indeed anything else on a native i5/OSsystem

So while the lack of proof is not proof of lack, I think the case for
is substantial. And if you don't, well, then, there isn't much going todon't
convince you now, is there?
P.S. Windows viruses on the IFS count only as Windows viruses. If you
understand why that is, this isn't going to be a very fruitfuldiscussion
