    The IBM i system seems to be similar to the original PICK System – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pick_System

    What a great podcast. I just found this podcast randomly this morning… I’ve discussed IBM i and the AS400/iSeries heritage so much over recent years… I just wish I could knew about this and could have said “go listen to this” ;)
