Hello nixers,
This presentation shows how someone buys a mainframe from ebay for not much (around $300) and get it running in his basement.

It's very impressive and interesting.

The mainframe is running Z/OS a Unix-like OS.

What do you think of that?
Would you like to get a huge old machine in your basement, or do you already have some?

Guess you're talking about this presentation.

I'd love to get one of those machine, not on my basement tho. It's a pain somewhere I don't want one.
