Vijosh, et al,

If you have read the latest analyst reports on how much money the AS/400
makes IBM you would know the answer.

The AS/400 is what, <2% of big blues income?

At the company you work at, what is the promotional budget for a <2%
revenue product line?

Now all of on this list KNOW that, with the scalability of the AS/400,
IBM could kill all their other products and still rule the world!  Maybe
it's time that the AS/400 dropped the midrange moniker and adopted
"broadrange".
