That's what was said kinda.

Frank I think actually said;

"The Unix marketplace itself is driven from the performance aspect of the
where as the SYS/35, AS/400, iSeries marketplace has traditionally been
more concerned with total system thruput performance. "

The majority of shops with their Upgrade plan in place with machines of
various ages,  Even if it were available to the iSeries market,  The
majority wouldn't buy one immediately anyway. Many shop's rollover plan
doesn't mind the six months between.

At last COMMON (or was it in NOLA?) I heard Dr. S tell us all that IBM
HQ has mandated that all new technology (in the i/p series camp) will
be introduced on the pSeries first and then after at least 6 month finally
on the iSeries (so not to upset the naming scheme that 'p' is for
performance). I.e. the pSeries will always be ahead of the iSeries
(until IBM changes strategy - it was also Dr. S who said that as soon
as IBM said that something was strategic it was also dead).
