ComputerWorld: Win 2k to run native on the AS/400?

“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.”
