Is it a myth when a website reportedly is "Powered by IBM i" but runs on Linux on IBM POWER systems hardware? After all IBM i is the operating system and if you're not "running on the IBM i operating system" and you say "Powered by IBM i" you're not being truthful, are you.

Here at MidrangeNews.com we are 100% RPG IV with embedded SQL behind this site. The only "java" we use is for SendMail which also runs under/on IBM i. No Linux in our infrastructure.

If you're running Linux on POWER systems and saying "Powered by IBM i" you're trying to fool somebody--or perhaps you're just not a clever as you believe you are.
