How to argue for Unix vs. AS400/CICS

As a traveling consultant, my road took me to a massive Vegas Gaming operation, that runs it's shop with AS400/CICS. The legacy-4 rooms size- computer is protected more than fort Knox, and the level of trust that I earned is envious to many of the top leaders of the organization, and beyond.

Yet I see the Legacy system holding back many opportunities for success, compared to what UNIX can deliver. Fear of change + job security + paranoid security + Grey hair + Tough-guy-gambler image, keeps AS400(system i) /CICS running, with problems building up to a staggering level, that Unix can solve in a blink of an eye.

What line of thought you can say, that can be a good argument for Unix vs. AS400?

Take your time. Thanks for reading.

libggzcore - The GGZ Gaming Zone core client library DESCRIPTION
This library is used by client programs to connect to the GGZ Gaming Zone server, handle game rooms, control user participation in the games, control chat and player properties. The ggzcore library handles the connection of a client application to the GGZ Gaming Zone server. It starts with offering a global configu- ration object for storing connection profiles for each server. The server list can be maintained by hand or updated via the GGZ metaserver. After this it goes on to callback registration for the connection, negotiation and authentication methods, which might include guest logins, first time player or registered player on the GGZ server. After a login it handles the global server object, the current room object and, when playing a game, the active game object. Additional objects include the table the game is associated with, players, game types and game modules which represent client-side game executables. Alternatively, a game can integrate ggzcore directly instead of being launched by a ggzcore-using GGZ core client, which is known as embed- ded ggzcore. Other tasks handled by the library are querying the local game registry with all properties per game; retrieving the server message of the day (MOTD) or player statistics; handling public, private and per-table chat as well as administrative messages; and managing the game launch and join events for players and spectators.
