**FROM DAN DYBWAD, via e-mail:
It's great that the new iSeries 890 has such superb performance, but
Rochester needs to remember that the "iSeries" was only a name
change. I defy anyone to tell me that the 890 would run any slower
if it carried an "AS/400" logo on the front cover instead.

The AS/400 went through a large number of major technological
changes in its lifetime and still worked fine when it was called an
"AS/400." The change of the name to the "iSeries" is only a marketing
gimmick to "freshen" the product.

Ian Jarman seems to "dis" the AS/400 in his recent comments
regarding how fast the 890 is -- performance the "AS/400" couldn't
match. He needs to remember that there are a couple hundred thousand
AS/400s in use, operated by a few hundred thousand proud and
extremely loyal AS/400 users. Ian, just tell me how great the new
stuff is, don't bad-mouth the old stuff.

My 820 says "eServer" on the front, but it knows it's really an
"AS/400" inside.
