I've heard (rumors admittedly) that the AS/400's at that service bureau 
(again, rumored to be in the Atlanta area) are the very same AS/400's that 
once resided at Microsoft.

Although IBM is very mum, it is known that M$ uses a service bureau for

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.

        which  way  would you be  throwing Gates  buck$?

You have  to admit they are telling  a guarded truth, as the service 
bureau chose the AS400 not M$ products to run M$ bu$ine$$
