I've seen that too, but not lately.   Now i am seeing shops that went in 
another direction coming back and saying they've found a niche for their 
400 and may even want to get a newer version.   The change-outs to the new 
platform don't go just as easily as the sales people said it would, 
hardware costs go over-budget and data conversions point out to management 
which pieces of data are no longer being tracked. 
Then when the training room performance bogs down with only 5 users and 
everyone realizes there are 75+ people going to go live on that same 
hardware in 15 days.... welll, suddenly the right questions  start being 

Still there does seem to be a case for mixed platforms, and a case that 
AS/400 programmers are stuck in old ways and something is needed to jolt 
them into  the 1990s.

Hi all,
Lately I see shop after shop moving away from the AS/400 to other
platforms such as NT, UNIX etc, But no new names to the AS/400 .
Is it only in Israel or all over ?
