Like Larry and Jon, I have almost no issues with the new ACS client although I'm still trying out the new visual explain function.

My connections are to dozens of different systems with OS and PTF levels all over the map. The one thing that is stable is my ACS installation. This is so superior to the old client that a couple of irritations are acceptable. Besides that once our friends in Rochester find an issue they correct it.

I remember writing the first client access certification exam (Larry was on that panel too). We spend half the time trying to figure out how to test the connectivity options. Now it's easy, give it an IP address and you're done. It's come a long, long way.

I’m with Larry on this.

I have experienced zero problems and it means I have an IBM supported product on native Mac which is a huge plus for me.

Only thing I run in Windows now is RDi … one day, one day.

Sure there are some hiccups but it is SO VASTLY better than the old client that the niggles and the bits while annoying to some are hugely outweighed by the benefits.

And it's people like those on this list that will push and test the thing until it breaks. This is why IBM pays attention here to get those things corrected.

I have been using this thing since early beta releases and I absolutely HATE when I have to go back to the old emulator.

And then I chuckle at the number of trouble tickets I see at one of

got a raise for beating the June 30th deadline for the first phase of
the rollout will have a job by Labor Day.

So I think I found another problem with ACS product this time in the
5250 plugin. Here is the RFE I created to address this (and no I
cannot create any other request to IBM without going through another
vendor (who I don't trust to get stuff right) and I think publishing
problems like these helps others voice their need to have IBM fix),
http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/execute?use_case=viewRfe&CR_ID=
92754

We before had an issue with display files where two fields shared the
attribute position and the solution from IBM was to just move one of
the fields over one place; this does work to fix the problem BUT this
is not a solution IMO because ACS 5250 version 1.1.6.0 will break, in
production, our
5250 windows and to fix this by moving fields on screens would cause
a significant cost for something that works fine with version 1.1.5.1.

This should not have to wait for 1.1.6.1 this should be fixed in
1.1.6.0 if
1.1.6.0 is going to still be offered for download.


Thanks, Matt
