As of March 1st 2016, I am no longer involved in world the Linux on z Systems so this Blog will go the way of so many...into stagnation. That said, I'll continue my core blogging over at http:\\www.MemorableURL.com.
If logic prevailed then the mainframe would be the dominant Linux platform in the industry; it really does have the most amazing capabilities. The uphill battle that IBM and others need to fight is the massive weight of the status quo around deploying into conventional distributed environments. IBM continues to increase their investments in the mainframe as a modern platform, I sincerely hope that this pays dividends.
In the mean time, help yourself to this cornucopia of content!
