Solaris on the IBM Mainframe

Who would have ever believed it? Solaris running on IBM mainframe hardware. Here's a series of video demos booting Open Solaris on zSeries.

This is particularly funny to me because we've now migrated some of our development load to a FLEX-ES machine. So on that machine, we're already running z/OS and zLinux on an emulator that's running on a Linux host.

In related news, there are new episodes (4 through 6) of Mainframe: The Art of the Sale on YouTube. It's like watching an episode of The Office set at IBM.
