IBM should offer inexpensive no-production-use IBM i licenses for discontinued hardware
The title says it all: for a nominal* charge, IBM should offer limited (processor, user count, use case) licenses to run the core IBM i OS and related no-charge licensed products on Power Systems hardware that is no longer sold and/or supported, along with downloadable copies of software so licensed.
* Free would, of course, be ideal, but a small (sub-$1,000 OTC) fee to offset IBM's costs in administering the program would be reasonable.
Uses include: - personal education - historical preservation - open source development - fun
