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 asked. 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. _______________________ Booth Martin Booth@MartinVT.com http://www.MartinVT.com _______________________ "Avi Hecht" <email@example.com> Sent by: firstname.lastname@example.org 01/28/2001 09:44 AM Please respond to MIDRANGE-L To: <MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com> cc: Subject: New names 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 ?
