    Astounding.

    @mainframed767 on Twitter just tweeted this:

    I have been running a full IBM System/370 Mainframe on a $20 Raspberry Pi Zero for ~5 months. Thousands of lines of COBOL and HLASM running flawless. Tested an entire bank’s mainframe COBOL on it.

    All he’s missing is the 029 card puncher and the console typewriter.
