Linux Review: Linux on the Mainframe

Two words that guarantee heated discussions at both the business level
and the IT level are Linux and mainframe. So, when I saw this title,
Linux on the Mainframe, I couldn't resist taking a peak inside. It's
actually funny to hear people debate about these two platforms
considering that the roots of both operating systems are older than
the people who typically discuss it. This fact simply underscores the
importance and viability these platforms still have today and will
have tomorrow. The authors more than understand the challenges of
large IT departments and clearly articulate why the combination of
Linux and the Mainframe is stronger than the pieces are apart. This
book is a great introduction and reference guide for those who are
involved professionally with mainframe technology.
