      >>> What are we going to do with it? I was perfectly willing to donate an
      older mainframe than that, but not if it were going to be used as a static
      display.

      Who said anything about a static display?

      Seriously though, what CAN we do to demo such systems? Educate us.

      I'm perfectly willing to appoint you as head of the Mainframe Demonstrations
      Committee. :)

        Good question, a properly running FreeDos would suit me fine, even on more modern machines. bs
