I figured anybody working on the iseries could at least spell it.  :-)  The
subject line of the e-mail you responded to was, and still is, "iSeries
Nation."

>I stopped looking for things on IBM.COM a long time ago.

Thanks to the efforts of Anne Lucas (and quite a few others) IBM is
improving what they can in iseries visibility and search results, but if you
don't give them a chance to help you -- they can't help you.  Hardly fair to
blame them for that though, is it?

I certainly agree with you on the renaming and the forfeiture of the AS/400
brand, and I hope Jodie's suitably impressed.  However what's done is done,
and grousing about it won't change things.   I'm sure somewhere there's a
vice-president who's no longer confused about AS/400's, RS/6000's and
ES/390's.  Now he just calls them all an 'IBM eserver thingy.'  The pity is
that vice-president is probably inside IBM.

I stopped looking for things on IBM.COM a long time ago.

Plus it is really confusing. X series is this, e series is that (except
its really a couple of different platforms, ins't it?) mInstead of
brands, we get product alignments within IBM.

I hear Pepsi is going to start calling Mountain Dew "Green Pepsi"  next,
to follow the IBM example.

Only IBM can afford to throw away the best computer brand name on earth.
I think they did it to impress Jodie Foster.
