RE: AS/400 Server.



fixed

If you never started calling the System38 an AS400 you would
not be able to Google AS400 and find much either.

AS400 is also the only way you can legitimately search for
anything in google. It may be last century, but still the
only way to "attempt" to find anything meaningful on a
search engine. The marketing guy was obviously oblivious to
search engines when he/she decided to call it "IBM i".

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....

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.
