This is a talk about my love for the IBM family of AS/400 computer systems.
Although itâ€™s a very hacker unfriendly system there is still much to admire and love.
Itâ€™s completely different from anything else which makes it nice but also very likely to disappear in few years from now. To prevent that piece of computing history to vanish I started a small initiative called https://www.as400museum.org/. Itâ€™s just me, but it does show my intention with the system.
It was a Novell server.

I love this retro version of the intro music. Really cool episode, too. I was not familiar with AS/400, and I don't know much about mainframes, so this was a fascinating overview. Thank you!

Certainly piqued my interest
Thanks for the informative episode! I've bumped up against the AS/400s a few times in my life, but never managed to find out what they were all about.
I feel this was a great intro, and I will be poking around the museum to learn more.

hpr2706 - episode about AS/400
thank you for your talk about AS/400 systems . I was working with those magical machines for about a decade and I must admit it was truely enjoyable experience. Thanks again for bringing back good memories. Cheers. treboR
P.S. I don't know how about others but for me those machines will always be AS/400 no matter what new marketing name IBM would invent for them iSeries, System i, etc... ;-)
