InfoWorld has run a number of very favorable articles, including software
and hardware reviews,  relating to the AS/400 in the past year.  There was
at least one head to head comparison with other operating systems.

Subject: Saving our AS/400


        Our U. has bought an ERP package based on Oracle, Sun servers and
the like.  As part of the deal, the vendor threw in an Alumni/Foundation
product for free and now there is pressure to move to it.  Unfortunately,
this product is not nearly as sophisticated as the system we have developed
on the AS/400.  We need ammo to convince the powers that be not to migrate
to this part of the ERP system.  We need to cite sources and articles by
reputable organizations that show the AS/400 is not a dinosaur.  We need to
show that the machine is as advanced as any server on the market and  that
it's going to be around for a long time.  We simultaneously need to show
that the 400 can support advanced languages like Java and C++ AND that RPG
is not a dead language.  Can anyone point me to the resources I need to do
all of this?
