I wouldn't be suprised.  If you are interested I would check into the Insider
Weekly put out by The 400 Group (I don't work for them but I do subscribe).
Essentially, there are not a lot of nice things said about Stephenson (and very
interesting quotes by David Andrews) with regards to the AS/400.

Unfortunatley, I will not be at COMMON.  I should be attending in the sprint at
San Diego (wife permitting).  Have fun!

     Wasn't there a "Upper" type person with the server group who pushed
     the Netfinity/NT combo,    Who left and went to work for (or
finially offically
     got paid by :-) )     Microsoft ??

     Subject:  Comments on Palmisano replacing Stephenson

     I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on Bob Stephenson being
replaced by Sam
     Palmisano.  Al?  For those that don't know Stephenson was the head
of the server
     group of which the AS/400 and Tom Jarosh report to.  Sam Palmisano
has recently
     been in charge of the Global Services division.

     A couple of comments made by industry magazines and analysts makes
me believe
     that this could be an extremely good move for the AS/400 and I don't
think I
     will miss Bob Stephenson.....

     It's interesting to note that the AS/400 specific advertising starts
up right
     after this announcement last week.......
