THat's possible but we don't know the version for iNext +1 and it would
mean POWER9 would live a longer life than all of those servers listed
below. We are rather certain that i 7.5 is the next release as we have
heard multiple persons from IBM Named Steve use that number. :-)

I might be crazy but I'm sensing a pattern here:

POWER4: last supported i 6.1
POWER5: last supported i 7.1
POWER6: last supported i 7.2
POWER7: last supported i 7.3
POWER8: last supported i 7.4
- so -
POWER9: last supported might be i 7.5 Maaaaaaaybe?

I know it sounds crazy and I may be waaaaaay out on a limb here, but
if you didn't see that coming I wouldn't apply for a job as a lookout!
