We just orders an upgrade from a 510 to a 720. Hardware should be here in a couple of weeks and live before the end of next month. We are also upgrading a second machine from a CICS 200 to a 170. All will be on V4R4 and we are going to upgrade the OS on the 400 from V3R7 to V4R4, (V4R3 at first). We can not wait, growing too fast. :-) Christopher K.

Personally I don't expect the world to collapse on 1/1/0, and I don't know anyone else who is expecting significant disasters. Why would IBM respond in this negative fashion? Suppose they introduce new hardware on 1/1/0 and no one orders it until February 29th? Delivery is normally far beyond annouce, with new products, so I don't see what is to be gained by slipping the announcement. It just adds to the mystique of the year 2000 problem. And, it encourages people who might order for earlier delivery, to delay any hardware purchases. Why would you order something which is already obsolete, knowing that IBM is putting off their new product announcements? Too bad. Is this part of an industry pattern? Are other IBM product lines holding back new hardware, or software, until the second half of 2000? I am not aware of this as a general pattern, at least not yet.
