Well, duh. 

This is like saying the VAX sucks because POSIX on VMS is a turd.  Ever used 
the Unix environment on CDC NOS/VE?  MVS/390 is really, really good at what 
it is designed to do.  The fact that it doesn't run Unix well is, frankly, 
not suprising. 

BTW...Linux/390 is pretty kewl, but it runs on bare metal or VM, not MVS.
