I think it was System/3 and 36, then System 38.  The Sys/38 had 
 S36 emulation from almost day one.  How could it emulate a 
machine that didn't already exist?

So I agree with you, not your friend.

Of course, it could be argued that the 36 was not in the direct 
blood line at all.  But did become a relative by marriage when 
the 236 & 436 where introduced.  And then with V3R7 running SSP, 
we now have inbreeding. And without the normal genetic 
consequences!

I am having a debate over AS/400 history and I'm hoping someone 
on the List
can settle it.  What was the order of computer platforms 
introduced by IBM -
(System 36, System 38, AS/400)?

I say the order was 36, 38, 400.  My friend says it was 38, 36, 
400.  Could
someone help me settle this?

Thanks!
