"Imagine running Windows 2000 natively on the AS/400? Well, it is at least within the realm of possibility, according to an IBM source."

"The source said that in recent months Microsoft Corp. made a proposal to IBM to port its Windows 2000 operating system to run on the IBM Power-4 PowerPC processor. The next-generation 64-bit chip is slated for release in the AS/400 server late in 2001. ... IBM's management is investigating the proposal, and its status is uncertain, the source said."

"An IBM spokesperson declined to comment on the matter."
