"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other word would smell as sweet." -- Shakespeare, from Romeo and Juliet.
Yes, a few weeks ago, IBM announced that they were changing the name of our beloved system from iSeries to System i. Actually, if you want to be technical about it, the previous name was IBM eServer iSeries, and the current generation was called IBM eServer iSeries i5. Now, the current generation is IBM System i5, and the server line is called IBM System i.
Our system is a great system, no matter what the name. That's why I put the Shakespeare quote at the beginning of this article. However, System i is a particularly bad choice.
