Nonetheless, that thread had to be pulled. I would like to re-draw everyone's attention to the "Legal Issues Concerning Intellectual Property Rights" thread, specifically:
Yes, the software concerned is so obsolete that it's effectively unusable. That, however, isn't the point. IBM hasn't abandoned it, and has licenced it ONLY to the person or entity that had the licence. Were an IBM representative to see such a request on the forum... let's just say it wouldn't be the first time that IBM has gone ape guano over such a thing (to be clear... as is their legal right), which is how the thread cited above came about in the first place.Requests For Sample, Materials, Etc
Similarly, posts which either ask for or upload software, documents, or other materials which are not openly available but which normally require a password supplied by the creator / distributor of the materials will be deleted
If you want to obtain old school copies of the software, making the request through your IBM account rep is the way to do it. I don't fancy your chances, and I grant you that old copies are more likely to be "in the wild" (my oldest version is 126.96.36.1995, which is depressing), but you can't do it through here.
