That's what was said kinda. Frank I think actually said; "The Unix marketplace itself is driven from the performance aspect of the machines. 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. John Carr -------------------------------------- Leif said; 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).
