kevin, cheaper resources, yes, I use pc-class servers. But Linux LPARs are
used for reliability and backup.

If you’re going for Linux on x86, why not just use Windows, because it
runs everything except RPG 😊

.Net also runs on Linux now as well with Core 2.0.

FWIW - It will be a cold day before you see IBM port .Net to IBMi.

Tim Rowe can’t even speak the name Microsoft or .Net in his presentations

If you want a separate Linux machine then there are surely cheaper options
than using up IBMi resources creating a Linux LPAR?

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
