Frankly, I'm not going through all the button clicking to sign up again
just so that I can reply to Search's article...

BUT, here's my reply.  :

ONCE AGAIN, unless and until IBM puts OS/400 marketing on the same par as
we saw with the linux add in the superbowl, unless and until IBM put
OS/400 marketing on the same par as you see for all the Thinkpads,
xSeries/Intel boxes, Unix/AIX boxes.....it won't be taken seriousely
because it once again, won't reach the target market that it needs
to...that being primarily those that DO NOT USE THE OS/400 TODAY.

All this choir preaching does not advance the systems outside of the box
of current user base.

Face it, this is all just to give folks something to rah-rah about that
ALREADY HAVE THE BOX....

I think Malcolm is doing a heckuva good job with what he's allowed to do.
Too bad he's not evidently given the same playing field and resources as
the unix, windoze and most lately, linux, systems....  That in itself
doesn't give me any warm fuzzies of confidence.

Pity, isnt' it, that the 2nd highest recognized brand that IBM has
(AS/400) is being hidden so well by IBM?

What was that writing I saw on the wall....mene mene tekel...?  :)

And, yes, I intentionally said OS/400, and not AS/400 or iSeries....
