You say that most folks are moving business apps to Wintel... while that's true, I've been hearing an awful lot of reports of people switching from IBM i to running SAP on AIX.

Yep, it *could*. I was thinking more in terms of someone who has an i and is being told that they need to switch to a "more modern" platform like Wintel. I wonder about business applications available in AIX? I know web serving and DB serving are strong application areas but when I scan my memory for an advertisement touting a business application on AIX I come up dry. I am *sure* they exist (just Google for them) but in terms of mind share for business applications, it is predominately Windows I think.

I guess I'd rather see someone go from i to p than from i to Intel.
