They sure liked using the word "legacy" when referring to the AS/400.  They
should look up the meaning.  too bad they don't mention the model of AS/400
they were using.

I wonder if a windows machine will ever last long enough to be called
legacy?

And their storage grows at 5GB a week.  That means that since 1995, if they
started at zero, would have 1.3TB divided by 15 machines is 86GB per machine
(unless my calculator is bust).  Still getting sub-second access.  I woner
why we can't get that on only a few hundred Meg on our SQL servers.  Hmmm...
They can't be talking about their websites.  I know that's not sub-second.

I wonder if MS is feeling the power of the iSeries e-Server AS/400 Midrange
System Application e-Lou Server?
