|I first became interested in the Hercules IBM Mainframe simulator /
emulator for running Linux/390 on my PC. As I was working to get
Linux up and running I noticed the effort to get MVS working under
Hercules. Once MVS was up and running (and the hard work was done by
someone else), I decided to try running it myself. I was completely
amazed! Here was the same operating system I was running in the late
1970's on then a "Big" 370/158 with 4 Meg of memory. I can
still remember back to late night system maintenance, Saturday Evening
SYSGENs, and TSO line editor mode. Now if I just had a card punch.
Many thanks to everyone that has contributed to my fun running my own MVS on my own "mainframe." For the first time in over 20 years I can finally do whatever I want with the operating system.
In my effort to be a part and contribute to the MVS 3.8 efforts I have attempted to create some basic documentation that should be of help to others.
