Support the very latest C and C+ Compilers natively as IBM i targeted Compilers
The ability to use C and C++ on IBM i is becoming increasingly frustrating as new C++ class libraries have been introduced and implemented in C++ variations on ALL OTHER OPERATING SYSTEMS. The decades-old Spec used for native IBM i development is not only frustrating but very bad for publicity.
The notion that "This is not your father's AS/400" when referring to IBM i Compilers (C/C++) is definitely not true. It is your Father's AS/400 because the compilers haven't been updated since it was named AS/400. The subliminal notion of using PASE and Open Source Compilers is ridiculous. If I wanted to code for Unix/AIX, I'd move to a $500 Intel Server and load Linux on it and have up-to-date C/C++ compilers in abundance.
