Paul, I'd ask them if they have ever heard of Control Language and SQL. It
might be news to them but they are both supported on IBM i and have been for
some time.

Anyone running macros such as you describe needs a real long rethink about
the architecture and reliability of the systems they run.

I calls 'em like I sees 'em. Only a couple of them even shave more than once
a week.

Picture macros that run dozens of queries. Some of those can run overnight.
I have stayed out of the details, but those macros did not survive the
upgrade intact.

'Windows Weenies'??? Denigrate much?

We have been running Windows 10 with ACS for months with zero issues. Not
sure what all these problems are you are referencing.

The fun part is watching the windows weenies having to sped all their time
dealing with the broken scripts and macros, not to mention the fact that the
Windows 10 upgrade wiped out printer definitions for every end user, along
with the ability to click the print screen button.

And yes, I was a beta site for Client Access 20 plus years ago. I even got
drive mapping to work on that lovely piece of software known as Windows for
Workgroups.
