Re: AS/400 Server.



fixed

Four letters, not that hard to memorize: IBM i. AS/400 is so last century.

Besides just like GM, IBM hasn't changed their name. GM Changes names too. The first truck I drove from them was a 'Custom 20' or C20 now they have Colorado, Avalanche, Silverado. And nobody whines....

Why? Why does someone need to spend hours memorizing confusing names
and genealogy before one can even begin to understand a product?

If GM can keep the Chevrolet nameplate for 80+ years without it being
stale then it'd seem a no-brainer for IBM to keep the AS400 badge alive.
