And don't forget that they also sold the SAME truck (OK OK with four

I maintain IBM could make the whole discussion go away by proclaiming a

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

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.
