Ok...dealing with the earlier versions of linux/s390 it looks like it is
pretty straight forward to do in VM/ESA or some other kind of VM. I do
have a friend that has an S/390 in his guest bedroom that he can't afford
and needs to get rid of. He also needs money so if you want one you can
contact me. The main thing that we would need to actually do this I think
would be some IBM support. Their usually pretty friendly when it comes to
research and forked out a lot of money to the groups doing the linux
research for s/390 and I personally have found netbsd to have a lot less
overhead then any linux that I've seen. For companies that would fancy
running perhaps 30,000 virtual linux pc's I wonder if they would like it
even more if they could run say 80,000 logical netbsd machines. anyway,
wondering what you think...hercules is a monster trying to get it to
run...I suggest we pick up an s/390 itself or at least have access to one.
The line being an aged one means that some will start to be retired soon.
Keep an eye out. And if you have deep pockets email me and you may get
yourself an s/390...i'm in california. ok bye.
