No - i wanted to illustrate that it's not as easy as you're trying to put it :)

The question usually isn't "IBM i or Windows" but "Windows or Windows + IBM i".
Windows offers a complete solution for most of your business needs.
The IBM i doesn't.

If you're a small shop and buy a new entry Power 520 you _NEED_ a
Windows machine just to configure your IBM i - OpsCon is the only way.

So it's a given that you'll need a Windows infrastructure. The only
question left is - do you want a second platform too? And most small
businesses already struggle with one platform.
