Linux.com reports on the use of Linux in larger mainframe computers, machines some considered to be near death just a few years ago. "The new Linux kernel 2.4 increasingly supports higher-end machines, such
as the IBM S/390 Mainframe, and clusters. 2.4 also better supports many of
the peripherals associated with this class of machine, like gigabit Ethernet,
fast-switching, multi-device support for RAID and LVM, improved SCSI
drivers, and more."
