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. -----Original Message----- From: Brad Jensen [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Monday, November 11, 2002 1:49 PM To: email@example.com Subject: RE: iSeries Nation > A simple google search on "iseries nation" brings up the home > page as the first result. > > www.ibm.com/servers/eserver/iseries/nation/ Oh, I looked for i-series nation and got Canadian statistics and vaccination nation > Even going to www.ibm.com and searching for iseries nation > gets you the "about citizens" page as the first result.

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.
