IBM Plans Initiative to Keep Mainframes Humming Along

Just read this story on Yahoo news about IBM's effort to simplify programming for mainframe computers. The story talks about IBM's on-going efforts to keep the mainframe relevant and useable. Even though it uses a lot of condescending terms like referring to mainframes as "warhorses" and "dinosaurs," the article is worth a quick read if you are a mainframe proponent.

The best news is that IBM plans to spend $100 million over the next five years to simplify mainframe operations and management. Now that is good news, indeed.
