OS/390 on your PC - It Can Be Done

Well, the following articles might not be terribly interesting for you, as you would need a license for OS/390 to try out what is described in them. And a license for OS/390 is not that easy to obtain (unless, of course, you buy an IBM mainframe and pay the monthly fees for OS/390 that would than be your obulus to help the poor old suffering lady IBM...),

If you do have a license, though, you might think about using hercules for desaster recovery scenario, and the useage for planning and setting up a desaster recovery system might perfectly be legal

I plan to keep this list growing, but, of course, I cannot give more than 125% of my time to the hercules project, and would invite you to collaborate...

The articles available so far are

Sorry, no more articles. If you want to see more, why don't you contribute one??

If you have questions, remarks, contributions, whatever, drop me a line.

Enjoy your private hercules mainframe
