Rest assured that vendors such as RJS will continue to help streamline
print and document output, delivery and archival issues even on the AIX
and Linux platforms whether running i5/OS or not.

We'll hopefully be able to keep print management above the abysmal and
tolerable level :-)

The key operating word in my vocabulary these days is: "change".

Not change is good or change is bad. Change is guaranteed :-) !!

We're hoping that i5/OS stays an integral part of the change process for
some time to come.

Hmmm...Well, I've worked a bunch on *NIX, and the user management and
security is much less than i5/OS'. Spooled output on *NIX is abysmal,
and the third party tools bring that level up to tolerable at best.
Work management on *NIX? Not even close.

There's not all that much difference from a development/web server/data
base standpoint. There is a huge difference from the system
administration standpoint.
