Like many of you out there in i5/OS and OS/400 Land, the writers and gurus at IT Jungle refer to the integrated relational database that comes with these operating systems as “DB2/400.” IBM doesn’t like this, and contacted us recently, asking us to please call it by its correct name. If it were only that easy.
Which one? Every time the marketeers are done with it, we get yet another name that does not exactly roll off the tongue. IBM itself is not consistent in its documentation and its speech when using the AS/400-iSeries-System i names, much less product names
