Few days ago, a new company was created: TurboHercules.

As the name implies, they package up Hercules (an IBM mainframe emulator), and provide support for it. They are targetting the platform as a disaster recovery solution.

It shouldn’t directly affect the open source project in a negative way (just like Red Hat cannot prevent people from continuing their work on the Linux Kernel). At the same time, it’ll change the way people look at Hercules.

IPL This!

I finally managed to find few minutes (well, about 2.5 hours) to write down and test my first howto. It is about…*drumroll*…Installing Debian under Hercules.

For those of you who don’t know, Hercules is an emulator for the System/360, 370, 390, and zSeries IBM mainframes.

Have fun, and let me know if you have any suggestions how I could improve the howto.
