Normally I'd agree with you Brad - but I read this more as a call to arms. It wasn't the usual chicken-little routine that we have seen for years regarding IBM i. It takes a serious look at a company that used to epitomize everything that was good about US business and which frankly now epitomizes everything bad from lack of care for the individual, lack of care for the customer, and rabid devotion to this quarter's bottom line.
It is sad.
