Even IBM can’t figure out what to call the AS400 / iSeries / i5.

Recently I visited a IBM web page that was describing a local event … here’s a fragment of what is displayed:

Take a look at the title … then look at the body.

The title refers to eServer iSeries … while the body refers to eServer i5.

How can IBM expect the industry to embrace the system if there’s no clear name for it?
