"Brief Intro to S/390 architecture How it runs a Certified UNIX implementation"

"Hello, my name is Mike Eschman. I work for Engima Inc., a software and hardware prototyping shop in New Orleans. We work with custom embedded units built around GPS, spread spectrum and FM, GPS and the Motorola 68332 processor, Linux, NT and S/390. Engima has been running S/390 UNIX for four years, across just under a dozen releases through OS/390 R2V9. Here is a brief introduction to that world and some links that may prove useful."

"Before delving into the particulars, I would like to make some comments about our experience with the S/390 platform, its strengths and its canker sores. For the record, we are anxious to port to Linux on S/390, as that will be easier for us working stiffs (one less OS to deal with)."

"The Linux distributions are NOT UNIX certified, only OS/390 is UNIX certified. This article will discuss how OS/390 UNIX Services work."
