So, I need to ask this question:

"IF Rdi was FREE, would you go for a ride?"

I like the idea/fantasy of "lite" version, but that still would not convince a punch-card-Lover to try RDI. The old WDSC was 100% Free, and still NOT many would even try it!

I pray that I am wrong, and that a "lite" version could possible bring newcomers to using/try RDI.
Everyone can get a free trial of RDI FULL VERSION for 60-Days! Awesome!

I need the designers, both screen & reports. I need the iProject and Data Studio. I need more! Not less!

Just another opinion shared among fellow RDI/IBM i enthusiast who have a PASSION for this fabulous IDE!

Go RDI Power!

PS. When I have to discuss some program issues with a fellow developer, I ONLY use RDI.

I refuse to use SEU. My source is defined with a length of 262, which SEU cannot handle it!

So, I am force to use RDI/LPEX, by my choice. Yes, it gets truncated when promoted to production, with the standard size of 112.

Or, an alternative view.

RDi Lite attracts many newcomers to the fold, those otherwise denied
by money-saving bosses. (These folk already do more with less.)

It used to be 'You already paid for in, just install it!'
The response was not overwhelming.

If we go back through the multiple discussions that have occurred here and tot up the various reasons for non-adoption, what has changed to alter the situation?

I have no wish to raise temperatures, just airing some idle thoughts
amongst friends. We're all passionate advocates here!

Amen brother.
