In Greek mythology, Prometheus is the Titan chiefly honored for stealing
fire from the gods in the stalk of a fennel plant and giving it to
mortals for their use.

Has anyone heard about this Prometheus Project at IBM?
 Some sort of
project to restore the System i to the greatness it deserves.  Yes I
know they've been talking about that for ages, but it looks like there's
now actually a plan in place and it might be different this time, they
may well succeed.  One good reason for that is they MUST succeed as this
is probably their last chance.

We've all seen the years of bland, homogenized, boring, dull, insipid,
irrelevant, instantly-forgettable crap they've put out in the past
(well, apart from the one very good campaign that ran in the UK in
time there may actually be a plan in place to deliver marketing nukes to
devastate the competition.  It sounds like the new approach will be very
non-IBM.  So that means it should actually be very
good !   ;-)
