We do not have an AS/400 running a web site (yet).  I have been consulting and
developing on the AS/400 since 1989 and we are members in the Partners in
Development program IBM offers.  I want one in here for dev/testing/hosting and
to support our customers that run 400's.  I have been watching the progress of
the platform and tools and personally believe it is ready for mainstream web.
I wish I could share first hand experience in web dev on the platform but have
not had the opportunity yet.  I can tell you the 400 is one of the most stable
platforms I have worked on and when running well coded software under a good
configuration is a top performer.  As much as I like the AS/400 I am still a
very big fan of Linux and I am glad to the see the two getting closer together.
