I was riding home from work in my car and on the radio came an IBM i ad, or maybe I should say a System i ad. It was one of the IBM Drive-Thru commercials that I truly do like, but in the end they were still selling the System i Express? IBM if you plan of anyone taking you seriously in the IBM i space and you want to have the right to complain that some people still use the term AS/40, then you have to be organized enought to all be on the same marketing page and not contenue to call a system you renamed over 9 months ago what you used to call it. I closed my eyes and was sad for a second becasue I knew IBM has still no clue how to market anything they own.

    Just a minor note... AFAIK, System i is still current from IBM, and System i Express is a current sales campaign. The "IBM i" name includes System i. It also includes the new Power systems; but as of yet, those do not replace System i.
