Note I did not say IBM i is dead, I did say the folks inside IBM that design

platforms, they just wish it gone or deem it irrelevant.

the customized interface but that all went away with the new design.

I also prefer Partition ID number ordering.

I am not holding my breath that any design changes for the HMC will
come through that someone outside of the AIX environment might like.
The designers and developers all believe IBM i dead, and wish it would go
