This is from NEWS Wire Daily: **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.
