also - note this paragraph:





There will be a big push toward application integration. More than a decade 
ago, IBM rolled out a box called the AS/400. It came
complete with a built-in relational database, and about 20,000
enterprise-ready software packages. Each application shares the same data
from the same relational database. The AS/400 box even supports Windows
2000/NT, Linux, and AIX Unix applications. That's about as tight an
application integration as you can get. Looks like the rest of the world
is finally trying to catch up.
