It seems that Rochester is still planting new trees.  Not many outside their
own forest.  And not many seedlings.  That is a pity.  It leads to haunting
in the forest.

I'm not sure that having AS/400 specific sales reps would help.  Prior to
business applications, it took sales reps to sell computers.  Businesses
would then roll their own apps.  These days, buyers look for applications,
then consider hardware secondly.

It seems to me that the future of the iSeries, is based on whether ISVs will
invest in new applications for the platform.  Web based applications still
look promising to me.
