Justaz, <br /> You bring up valid points. I will update the sentence to: <br /> <blockquote><br /> "The primary operating system that runs on this is called "z/OS", which when used with its integrated UNIX System Services subsystem, is fully UNIX-certified."<br /> </blockquote> <br /> There are actually several functional dependencies on USS, but you are correct that the core z/OS can boot without USS. I thought that introducing the three options (PSI, FLEX-ES and Hercules) with "Back in 2007" would indicate these were historical references, but I will add the following to emphasize that they no longer are viable: <br /> <blockquote><br /> "None of these are viable options today."<br /> </blockquote>
