I'm guessing they enjoy developing two SQL editors and query statistics viewers. It seems to make more sense to merge everything into one product (Data Studio being the prime candidate since it has always done many more things regarding SQL and database interactions) then navigator did.

Ohh and Data Studio has intellisense. Navigator gives you a notepad like interface, very bare bones. Only now do we have syntax highlighting, but again Data Studio had that for years.

It's probably two different IBM teams and they don't talk to each other :-)

Maybe because I know a LOT of people who have used IBM i Access for Windows and can easily migrate to IBM i Access Client Solutions, while, short of you, I can't think of anyone familiar with IBM Data Studio?

I see they finally realized they couldn't build a Web based SQL Query
editor that people would enjoy using and the same goes for the query
statistics plan information.

What I don't understand, is why they didn't enhance the IBM Data Studio
product to work better with the IBM i.

Instead they seem to have just broke out those two pieces from Navigator
and repackaged them into ACS.

I'm guessing this all has to do with the cheapest budgeted option.

Atleast the SQL editor has color now :-)
