    That's not exactly true about coming from the user community.

    I, for one, started in IDMS as a user, with IDMS CAMP. There was no DC,
    we
    used TaskMaster (I think that was what it was called). I then moved to
    another user site where, after an extensive analysis of DBMSs available
    (about 23 if I remember right), we selected IDMS, and none of the IBM
    products made it to the top 3. Through all of this I was an application
    programmer, DBA, DCA and bug fixer. Yes, I fixed some bugs and then told
    support how I fixed it. I worked with all aspects of the IDMS products
    as a
    client BEFORE I ever became a Cullinet employee. That is probably why I
    worked in both DB and DC Level 1 before advancing to DB Level 2 where I
    still work on DB and occasionally some DC related issues, though
    concentrate
    more on SQL issues right now.

    I don't know if anyone else in the group came from the user community,
    but
    I, for one, did.
