 Today that campus worth of hardware is emulated in the hercules
 s360/370/390/ zSeries emulator http://www.conmicro.cx/hercules
 running on a PC running linux or winbloZ

 OS, DOS, MVS, VM ... running on your pc, serves x3270
 terms over the network etc etc.

 So now the "real computer" runs as a small program on a PC

 Yes its the same deal as simh or p11, but this one will run
 the same systems as IBM's current top line hardware.
