Although IBM is very mum, it is known that M$ uses a service bureau for some processing, and that service bureau uses 400's.  Furthermore, some of the ex-M$ personnel who are familiar with the M$ application (MAC PAC if I'm not mistaken) now work for that service bureau.

I would trust M$ as far as I can throw all of Bill Gates' money.
