IMHO, IBM strategy for defeating FAST400 is done.  They did a better job
than the US did at Osama (who's probably in South America fooling around
with the granddaughter of some Nazi).

By making the FAST400 a prereq for every other PTF in the whole world, they
won the war.  OS/400 is a proprietary operating system, and that's a good
thing, not a bad one.

Has anyone ever received a PTF package unrequested?  We're on V4R5 and
received one without us ordering it.  I have great reservations against
installing something I didn't ask for -and- especially something without
any sort of notation as to why it was sent.

The conspiracy side in me thinks this is one way IBM gets everyone to
install the Fast/400 defeater.
