Maybe you're interested in hercules, which provides emulation
of IBM's mainframe architecture that was the "parent" (with
OS/360 and OS/390) of Siemens' original BS2000.
Vintage operating systems, let's see what I can remember...
SCP, DCP, MUTOS, SVP, VMX, PSU, WEGA, KAOS, OS/ES (once my
favourite)... I'm sure no one of you knows from mind what
I'm talking about. But don't mind, they don't exist anymore. :-)
