Is Newer Really Better?


Earlier this month, TEC analyst Aleksey Osintsev posted a short piece about the perceived shortcomings of the venerable IBM AS/400 (now the IBM System i). It seems he touched a nerve with the platform’s defenders, who were quick to offer an opposing view in the post’s comments. The general consensus was that, while it isn’t mainstream, the AS/400 is alive and well. Unfortunately, our commenters
