People don't and won't see all the new features and functions that IBM has delivered.

Thank you for providing additional details about the announcements. I was especially pleased with the "Live Mobility" announcements. They demonstrate IBM's commitment to keeping IBM i relevant for "high availability" cloud computing scenarios. Over time I think we'll see a lot of IBM i workloads move to data centers that offer versatile options for "infrastructure", "platform", and "applications" as a service, where running workloads can take advantage of "Live Mobility".

I'm looking forward to trying the JAR version of IBM i Access. I like TN5250J, but occasionally run into issues where support is hard to get. I'm also pleased that IBM is continuing to support PDM and SEU under a new product and a price point that any business can afford. More people are picking up Rational Developer Tools, but there's still a BIG need for PDM and SEU. Tablets and phones won't run Rational Developer Tools. We still need a "thin client" option.

Regarding your statement about people not seeing the new features, I should report that in addition to Midrange Lists, these announcements are being chatted about on Twitter and Linkedin, as well as Steve Will's and Dawn May's blogs, and on DeveloperWork blogs and groups.
