Re: [opensuse] RE: Stability of systemd

Where have you been for the last 10 years?:-) 10+ years ago I ran a
program for a <large US software firm>, promoting Linux on 390. I
wrote sufficient floating-point support in Hercules to run Java on
Linux/390 on Hercules.
I honestly don't know the state of things today, I've been away from
that field for too long, but IBM made that move to Linux long ago.

About 10 years ago was when I stopped replacing those big boxes in raised floor settings with Linux boxes and moved on to other things.
It got rather tedious and repetitive.

Yes I'm aware of the Linux-on-a-mainframe, I just haven't worked with it.

That 48 core HP box you mentioned - that's blades rather than one single multi-core cpu, I presume?

The boxes I was talking of (and sometimes replacing) were things like the HP-3000 series and the SA-RISK based T500 series. Non-intel architecture.

How long did the whining go on when KDE2 went on KDE3?

The only universal constant is change. If a species can not adapt it
goes extinct. That's the law of the universe, adapt or die.
