IBM developerWorks: The IBM Linux Project for S/390Jan 12, 2000, 18:43 (7 Talkback[s])
"S/390 is IBM's standard bearer for enterprise computing. S/390 provides scalability, availability, security, openess, the flexibility to handle mixed workloads, and a low total cost of computing."
"Linux for S/390 is a prototype port of Linux to the S/390 architecture. Linux for S/390 is a "pure" Linux from a user point of view. It supports the S/390 processor architecture and some devices that are specific to S/390 environments. Therefore Linux for S/390 automatically inherits important strengths and reliability features of the S/390 hardware."
"IBM's contribution to Open Source was made to provide a clear interface to the S/390 architecture upon which a Linux system could be installed."
