I recently wrote about the next version of the IBM i operating system, formerly called i5/OS. It is due out next year. But in the meantime, IBM has come out with an intermediate version of IBM i 6.1.1. Once you get past all those decimal points, you may want to know what the heck it is, what it does, and why it might be useful to install.
For that we have Steve Will, the chief IBM i architect, who wrote about “What is This ‘.1′ Anyway?” for IBM Systems Magazine. Dawn May also writes about it in her post, “Install IBM i Over the Network.”
