That's great that they take perfectly capable machines and make them almost
worthless. Shoot... my old 515 could run V7R4 I bet. I know my 41A isn't
even touching it's capability at V7R4.

The one positive is it can at least be used for OSS... unless they break
that too.

Guess I'll be buying a new power 11 in a couple years. :)

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!
