Since I inquired into the specifics of the program, Jim Baker (IBM) sent me
an email that included this description:
IBM iSeries Integrator Lease Program Information
The IBM iSeries Integrator Lease Program enables iSeries systems
integrators, consultants, web integrators, and services providers to
acquire the latest iSeries technology at affordable rates in order to
develop the skills and familiarity of their staff with this technology. It
can also be used to develop new solutions,  proof of concepts, new services
methodologies, customize applications, conduct demonstrations and other
such activities that will develop your iSeries services business. It is not
to be used as a production system on which to run your business or your
customer's business. </quote>

I would say not only is product development ok, but encouraged.

(i do not speak for IBM-just a life-time user)

I'm confused. Not using it as the system to 'run a business' on seems
reasonable. Activity that directly results in a revenue stream, e.g.,
leasing time to others, would be restricted. But no product development?
What would a consultant do with the box? Just use it for demos of iSeries
LPPs? Just "study" it?
