Don't get me wrong, I'm all for a full Gnu dev env on IBM i.

I just think it makes more sense to use a Linux LPAR as your web-facing
application fetching data from IBM i.

Because it's worlds easier to develop, test, and deploy this stuff on Linux.

Nondescript it ain't, friend Justin. Very powerful platform.

Is it better to make your IBM i into a slow and slightly inadequate Unix

Try running XWindows from PASE sometime.

Using IBM i as just another nondescript DB doesn't sound like an
efficient use of resources.

Of course my view of the most efficient path forward with Open Source is
"install a Linux LPAR and do the fancy stuff there, where it's at home,
just slurp the data from the IBM i LPAR".

Not that I don't love PASE. I do love PASE. But trying to make everything
on Linux work on i seems inefficient in comparison to "Let Linux be Linux,
let IBM i be IBM i," since every possible mode of connectivity works
between the two.
