The Mainframe Still Lives

,----[ Quote ]
| Listen up, boys and girls, the mainframe is not dead; in fact, it's very much 
| alive. Every few years, people predict that the mainframe is on its last legs 
| and will be taken over by the technology du jour.  
| [...]
| Kernochan said that the growth in demand for the mainframe has led IBM to 
| enhance its own mainframe administrative tools in two ways. One is through 
| incorporating features from, or integrating with, Linux platforms. The other 
| is through adding to its collection of tools for the z/OS operating system.

Linux still super in Top500

,----[ Quote ]
| In the June 2008 Top500 list, Linux still lives large with a role in 92% of
| systems (It is the only OS for 85.4%, but when considering all distributions
| (SUSE, Red Hat, CentOS, and general ‘Linux,’ as well as mixed uses that
| include Linux, I figure the share is more like the 92%).

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
