I'm in a similar situation to what you describe, but negativity has nothing
to do with it.  Other fires always burn brighter, and Domino on the iSeries
just works.  If it broke more often, I'd get more leave to keep it more
up-to-date, but that seems like an odd thing to wish for....

You probably meant that tongue-in-cheek but I don't like to think that
1 - Many people who start to feel that way end up only putting on new
versions of OS/400 and/or Domino when they just HAVE to because of
hardware or other limitations.
1a - Thus more work gets moved off of the iSeries because it is
1b - Workarounds are then used instead of features that are now in the
latest version.
2 - I've seen numerous people who are only allowed to IPL their iSeries on
an infrequent basis, yet they like to stay one cume behind.
2a - Thus they've got problems that were resolved with the latest cume.
Now they have to wait for the next scheduled downtime to resolve it.
3 - In general, people tend to shy away from people with a negative
