People didn't care, because the AS/400 was based on a proprietary solution.
I remember a client being forced to dump an AS/400 due to astronomical

With todays generically mass-produced 64bit archs, what's not to care about a
cost-effective system that provides direct mapped access into linear address
space?

Thanks!
