System i hardware
These longer, more detailed comments at the System i Network are even better than the previous post, in my humble opinion. In this installment, users wonder aloud about the 40-user cap with the 515 machine. Why? They ask. David Vasta over at iSeries Addict has the same question, and isn’t shy about his criticism:
Why would you make the fastest, and most reliable system, the i5 in a nice small affordable package and then put a limit on it? Why? Please someone with brains take over the i5 business unit at IBM and do something right for a change? In the last 20 years IBM has bumbled the i5 product line like a bunch of keystone cops. They get something right like the price and the size and then do something stupid like put a cap on the number of users.
