Bruce,

Thanks for pointing that out, it was in my brain, it just did not get to my
fingers.

Yes, I was, and am, calling out the developers that work on and design the
HMC as not listening to nor paying attention to a very significant portion
of POWER users, those of us that work on IBM i. We help pay their salaries,
and I'd like to be taken seriously by those folks.

Jim,

I'm glad you clarified your earlier statement of

"I am not holding my breath that any design changes for the HMC will come
through that someone outside of the AIX environment might like. The
designers and developers all believe IBM i dead, and wish it would go away."

When I first read that, I mis-interpreted "The designers and developers all
believe" where "all" included developers such as in Rochester, which I
thought was a bit too inclusive. Prefixing "designers and developers" with
HMC makes it much clearer (to me anyway).

was gone.
Based on the lack of attention to one of the world's most successful
OS platforms, they just wish it gone or deem it irrelevant.

As long as we "dying" IBM i enthusiasts do behave loud, they cannot
overhear us.
Let's create some RFE for this, the HMC interface is currently my
beloved battlefield.

I too would like the customization we do to the interface to be
persistent by user profile. We used to have something near that
with the customized interface but that all went away with the new
design.

I also prefer Partition ID number ordering.

I am not holding my breath that any design changes for the HMC will
come through that someone outside of the AIX environment might like.
