I usually try to avoid these discussions but I do want to make a about using SEU until it breaks. It is my understanding that with 6.1 SEU will break. Now, you can still write and maintain RPG code, as well as others, but the new compiler operation codes will not be supported. This has been discussed several times on the RPG and Midrange lists. It doesn't prevent you from doing your job but it does make it harder. Especially if you are trying to move forward in your coding.
Would you really want to use an editor that doesn't support the full features of your coding language?
And in the interest of full disclosure the same thing will happen with WDSC at 6.1.

I see your point about IBM shooting themselves in the foot with the structure/pricing they're putting in place. Why not just go back to SEU\PDM and make the switch to RDi when some distant OS release finally breaks them? Save the licensing fees for RDi until then.
