And just in case that doesn't make it clear to you, how about this: http://www.asna.com/pages/press_release_view.aspx?nID=85 QUOTE: "ASNA provides a comprehensive solution for midrange shops to leverage their RPG experience and move it forward to modern standards based on the .NET framework and Web services," said Dan'l Lewin, vice president of .NET business development at Microsoft. "With ASNA, the Midrange Alliance Program now offers a far better roadmap for RPG developers than IBM." Clearly, ASNA is promoting the wholesale abandonment of IBM and the iSeries platform. I wouldn't be surprised if the iSeries community turned around and abandoned ASNA just as completely. As far as I'm concerned, any company that recommends moving stable systems from the iSeries to Microsoft is endangering their customers' business.
