IBM is making an effort to breathe new life into the mainframe. With the S/390, they want to show that the mainframe is the premier e-business platform. What will it be running? oooh yeah Linux.
The move to bring Linux to the mainframe comes at a time when IBM is continuing to try to build momentum for its message that the good, old mainframe is a very hot e-commerce platform
I wish someone would give me a day to play with one of these machines... Linux runs great on a 486 DX4-100, the thought of playing with it on a mainframe, frankly makes me dizzy.
