Glenn,

what we're seeing is a huge hunker down and wait until the y2k storm
clears...with alot of pentup projects waiting until after 1/2/00 or
2/29/00 depending on the company

Also, as far as the 400 sales being down...well, if IBM would start
telling folks that the 400 exists, cleanup their business partner antics,
get some decent marketing going then perhaps they'd have a better
credibility base in the product established...

JMHO....
