This talk will dig into the long history of the IBM mainframe world. We will explain how it started, why it was successful at the time, how it evolved, why it has all these strange features, and what it looks like today. We will also give some insights into the operating systems and how they evolved with the architecture, and how mainframes eventually learned to run Linux.
