Scott Forstie, a DB2 developer, spoke at our user group last year.  It was referred to as "IBM DB2 for i" or just "DB2 for i".

Personally, I cringe every time I hear "AS400" or "the 400" due to the negative inferences people make.

Subject: Is DB2/400 still the correct terminology fo DB2 on the IBM i?
To: midrange-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx

I had the great pleasure of being a a SUG where Trevor Perry made it quite
clear that AS/400 and iSeries were no longer acceptable terms (unless your
dealing with older hardware of course). I also see on the IBM page its
referred to as *IBM DB2 for i*. That's a bit of a mouthful.

Is DB2/400 still considered acceptable? Should I say DB2 for i when I want
to be brief?
