We just went from V6R1 to V7R2 last weekend (Yeah!).

In the official company email newsletter, it was at least referred to as follows:

AS400 (IBM i) will be unavailable this weekend, Sat., Sept. 19, 5:30 p.m. PST – Mon., Sept. 21, 6 a.m. PST. 

Baby steps.......

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

I see that side of the argument. On the other hand, if you say AS/400,
people have an (outdated) idea what your talking about. If you say iSeries
or IBM i, many people don't. I feel compelled to call it an AS/400 to
people that don't have midrange experience simply because they probably
worked some place that had one in a data center.
