Oh - that MP 3000 :-) I forgot about that thing. I had a MP 3000 H50
in my shop. Cute little thing. I even had a trip to pok.ibm.com for a
little one on one time with some geeks that hadn't seen the outside
world in about 40 years. This was about the time where running linux was
a novelty. "Why would you ever want to do that?" asked some of the sysprogs.
...ran MVS and USS at the time on this fella.Not to mention the OS/2 on
the sbc to load the bootstrap.
Note to self - never ever hit ESC while writing JCL. You will have
about about 1.5 seconds to watch your JCL say goodbye..... :-)
Rather than a MP3000, I would rather have a R390 or a P390. I think I
could afford to power that..... Anyone have one of these ?
