That's wrong....we don't advocate users get off the iSeries/i5.

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.
