I'm confused. Are you unhappy with the _technical_ aspects of DB2 for
i5/OS, or the _usage_ of DB2 for i5/OS?

When you talk about "real" RDBMS, do you mean technical or usage
aspects? All your emails appear to be centered on usage.

Well, it seems like I got some, a pitiful few, to think outside the box.
But, sadly, most still drink the Rochester kook-aid and still justify
things like a person that says the Bible is the truth because it says it
is. And, because of that, it is foolish of me to try to convince
religious zealots their gospel might not make it in the industry
standard and accepted RDBMS world. Again, I just wish this community
could see itself like the rest of the IT world sees it and spend some
time talking to the real DB2 and ORACLE crowd on their forums and
conventions and see how their positions hold up.
