And I want to know why tier 1 accounts can sell into my | accounts but I can't sell into theirs. | | Doesn't anybody in IBM know how to spell "anti-trust" these days? I'm not that familiar with Taft-Hartley, other than know it exists. I also don't know about IBM's tier system of ISVs. I understand the problem, but how is it related to anti-trust?? Or is it in quotes because this practice causes such Negative-Trust amongst the ISVs?? (And read, last night, Mr. Zollar like other iSeries Heads is Counting on ISVs and BPs to do MOST of the hard work of GETTING iSeries some visibility.) Also, Reeve, do you know if this is a widespread problem or just something you "happen" to run into (occasionally?)?? j
