Anyone ever done assembly on one of the IBM 360/70/90 beasts?? Man those 4K
pages were a pain...
Personally, I think trying to port any of the *nix's to the IBM 3x0 machines
would be a royal pain... the I/O channel architecture would be quite an
effort to try and incorportate into the system, and how exactly would you
plan on handling those 3270/80-type bi-sync terminals that operate
half-duplex in line-by-line mode... the old IBM's seem to like dealing with
everything like a deck of punched cards (yuck).
