Definitely. The last re-branding was unnecessary but fortunately will be forgotten soon enough.

It should be far easier for IBM to market and sell a common hardware line. The case for i5/OS (or whatever it will be called) remains, but should get resistance now that it can be said it's just software that runs on a "unix" server.

I don't care what they call i5/OS or how they market it (OS, App Server, etc.) as long as it sells.
