i stands for internet, last I checked i is not a number. g stands for grid
\UDB stands for Universal Database which in IBM lingo denotes a DB2
family member that has: user defined distinct types, user defined
functions and LOBs. Since all DB2 family members have those it became
pretty meaning less.
The "UDB" acronym to denote DB2 for LUW is as false as implying Microsoft SQL Server when saying "I'm using SQL"
And yes, I'm sure I work to IBM and yes I am aware that IBMers are the misconception as much if not more so than anyone else. Call it a pet-peeve of mine....
