The IBM i operating system is not Unix; it"s not Windows; and it"s certainly not Linux. This session describes the architecture of the operating system which had its origins in the System/38"s Control Program Facility, but which has evolved as it has been the basis of the AS/400 and its descendants. If you"ve started using the platform in the past decade or so, this session will teach you why things are "different" on IBM i. If you"ve been on the platform since "the beginning" it will provide a refresher, as well as teaching you about the key differentiators of today"s IBM i.
