The S36E was the original System/36 Environment, that was shipped with the first release of OS/400. To use it you had to have the source for your system, and you had to recompile, so many couldn't use it. Also the performance was not stellar. (Although IBM proved over time that if you throw enough hardware against a performance problem, you could fix it using the brute force method.) When the 64 bit hardware was completed, IBM figured out that the could build a "native" version of SSP that ran without recompilation. So before the first RISC boxes, IBM built a model of the Advanced System/36, the model 236. In V3R7 this became the M36 environment. It was a great idea, but it was too little, too late. The S36E never supported WSU, buy the M36 did.
