Actually it's not called WinDoze - it's Windows. At least get it right.

Subject: Re: Is DB2/400 still the correct terminology fo DB2 on the IBM i?

Since a certain Sunday in 1984, when the Olympics and Orwell collided head-on in what is probaby still the most famous commercial for computer hardware ever, Apple's principal GUI-based desktop and notebook product line has been called "Macintosh."

Even though current Macintosh models are a far cry from the original Mac
128 (or even the Mac Plus).

WinDoze 10 has very little in common with 1985's 1.0, and yet it's still called WinDoze.

In less time than that, IBM has changed the name of the AS/400 at least twice.

What's wrong with this picture?
