Frank Soltis, the father of the IBM AS/400 in 1988, is rumored to not be working at IBM anymore. Let go or whatever, it’s hard news for a person like me to stomach. It’s pretty sad really. Frank has always been that rock star engineer who quantified the IBM i. He was the corner stone and in person a super nice guy.
While I don’t have anymore details than that I can’t seem to find anything further. Seems I am kind of breaking news here. So if anyone has any details and would like to share them I am going to be putting out feelers for what has happened to Frank. He’s not going to be at IBM anymore which scares me as an IBM i person, but maybe IBM is going to fix the problems with marketing now that he is gone….probabaly not.
More to come….
