Part of the entitlement culture, I'm afraid...

Luis,

I love it when they whine that the darn vendor treats their paying
customers better than the ones who haven't written them a check in years.
They seem to think that's so wrong. They don't understand why the vendor
doesn't give those who haven't kept up a huge break and just penalize the
paying customers. Then they complain that the vendor treats their
customers bad. Excuse me? You haven't written them a check in years -
what makes you a customer?

Hopefully you have already upgraded before now. If not, why not?
01 - My hardware does not support past 6.1
02 - My vendor will not certify their software to run on anything newer
than 6 years old.
03 - We always run on x-2 hoping the bugs have been worked out.
04 - Too busy
05 - We run 24x7x365. We haven't even done a full system save in a
decade.
06 - I've never put on a PTF so why do I care about support?
07 - If it ain't broke, why fix it?
08 - We dropped support for both IBM i and vendor software to save money
and it costs too much to catch back up.
09 - This machine will be replaced by non IBM i software and hardware.
10 - Not missing my Saturday morning cartoons for anything.
11 - Retiring soon, like I give a rip.
12 - Other (explain)
