Lenovo marks 30 years of ThinkSystem with slew of new kit


Smacks of desperation

30 years ??? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ... they really are smoking something.

Claiming some lineage from the Server 95 that was a follow on from the old PS/2 Model 95? Some of us worked on those back in IBM. ThinkSystem was only announced in 2017. It's actually been 5 years not 30 and of course there is not a single thing in common between those products as you would rightly expect given the 25 years between them.

Absolute complete claptrap.

Usual disingenuous claptrap from IBM

"37 per cent of all US hires at IBM were over the age of 40;"

Right, now separate out those that came onboard through acquisition of their company and those you actually set out to hire. Oh, quelle surprise ... you acquired some over 40's, which you got rid of as soon as you could, but actually hired a load of 20 somethings.

Bless you: Yep, it's IBM's new name for tech services spinoff and totally not a hayfever medicine

Anything you like it appears as long as something you count elsewhere can also pretend to be a 'Strategic Imperative'.

That IBM should never ever be trusted on anything. A morally bankrupt, deceitful, manipulative organisation incapable of the truth.

Not sure where you get your 'like most people I don't feel bitter' from. All the folks that I know that got divested absolutely hate IBM and wouldn't piss on it if it was on fire.
