I thought everyone would get a charge out of the fact that it seems that
the HP3000 people at least are seeing AS/400 marketing everywhere
and think it is a "Big Success"

I Joined this group(HP3000 list) to give them some migration "Options".
It's been fun.  Plenty of openings to make a statement.


But what makes so angry is that CSY blames the "customers" or
"non-customers" while a lot of people think that CSY didn't do their job in
marketing, promoting and selling the 3000.
How come the AS400 is such a big success when the 3000 could have done the
same? I saw many commercials about the AS400 and none about the 3000.
In almost 30 years, did you ever see a TV-commercial about the 3000?
How many ads did you count in the computerworld?
I thought and hoped it would get better when they put the "e" in the name
and sold some to internet-companies, but still no ad, no commercial,
nothing. AS400 daily and everywhere.

And then George writes that nobody wants the 3000.
Of course not!! Nobody but a few knew it was out there.
