What do you call your AS/System iSeries 400 in your IT shop?

I like every one still call the i all kinds of things. Which is of course bad but I like others in the industry want to know the following things?

  1. What do you call the i now?
  2. What do you call the i in conversations with peers?
  3. What do you call the i in conversations with executives or senior level staff?
  4. What do you call the i in private?
  5. What do you call me in private?
  6. Is the name change to i a good one?
  7. Do you like the idea of one price on box?
  8. Do you also run AIX in your IT shop?
  9. Does it make you crazy when others call it the AS/400?
  10. Does it make you crazy when others call it the iSeries?
  11. Do you get a warm felling when someone says I still have a System/36?

I can go ahead and get the ball rolling:

  1. i
  2. i or System i
  3. i or AS/400 – Most of them still call it the AS/400 so when in Rome…..I try to say AS/400 or i and then always say i
  4.  My little treasure
  5. David
  6. Yes
  7. Yes
  8. I have and would if I could YES!
  9. YES – CRAZY!
  10. Not Really but YES
  11. Of course – but not like if they said Macintosh Classic II

    1. “The 400” 2. AS/400 3. “The 400” 4. “The 400” 5. David 6. NO, Definitely not! 7. Yes 8. No 9. Not at all 10. Yes, but getting used to it 11. Very much so! I started on a System/3 then to a S/34 then to a S/36 and finally to the AS/400, several of those. We still even have a few apps that run in S/36E that we have just never converted… just nostalgic, I guess! Although they were updated to conform to the current F-key assignments!
