General Price Action on System z

Here's the annual general price action for mainframe: 'General Price Action on System z, eServer zSeries and S/390 Software Program Products (ZA09-1001)'.Usually this announcement comes in April and becomes effective in July, so we're three months early this year. Crisis everywhere ?
It affects a range of MLC software. Some products like z/OS can have a price increase between 0% and 3%, others will have an increase between 0% and 5%. Here IBM seems to make a distinction between supported and end-of-support versions of software. E.g. DB2 9 and DB2 V8 are in the first series, DB2 V7 is in the second series. Time to move on to supported versions I'd say.
For the detailed lists, check out the announcement itself.
