Wow - thanks for sharing this, Steve. Just as many of us have been saying - the rumors of IBM i's death have been greatly exaggerated. I wonder how many other current platforms show future plans as far into the future.

I was fortunate enough to see these slides discussed by Steve at OMNI's 2012 Tech Conference and that keynote alone was worth the cost for the whole day. Long live the i!

As a vendor who provides software to extend and enhance the IBM i platform, we find your comments (and your style!) most encouraging. It's great that you took the time to prove the forward thinking you guys are doing about the IBM i. Well done!

Great info Steve with some good messages. Thanks for sharing. But what is IBM doing to drive the platform acceptance of the platform? What positive marketing are they planning? I would love to see some info on new installs of iOS that are into installations without current iOS installs? Do we see IBM moving new users onto the platform? Without this new growth, the expansion of the support model, while a great comfort to business currently running the software, does not speak to growing the platform. As a strong supporter of the platform who was downsized, it is this new growth that I am interested in.

Take that Mr. C.!
