  The do indeed classify the S/390 as a mainframe...because, well,
that's what it is. :-)

  The 390 architecture is an evolution of, and is largely compatible
with, the S/370 family and related architectures...which (as far as I
know, I'm not a mainframe expert..yet!) started with the S/360 back in
the 1960s.
