"Thank you for calling, how may I BBBBRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.....
I always get the person that english is their third or fourth language
Hmmm... BASIC, 8051 Assembler, Pascal, C, C#, Delphi, VB, VBS, VBA, Python, ah there it is English.

missing cobol and fortran tsk tsk
Never main lined the stuff.

You go DOS.
Still in use today. and very highly paid employees... So much so that IBM are trying to (and have partially been successful) lay off their own MF staff because it's so specialized and costly.
Distributed vs mainframe argument been going on for almost 2 decades now and the Z is still here, much like Cray. one reason. Security.
Python is a dirty language. Google like it because it's an overlay. distributed compute is full of exploits and additionally subject to physical layer tampering.

cp/m ? lol
I even had a cp/m card in my ][e.
At least four decades. When the IBM PC came out the death of the mainframe started. All the prior CP/M systems didn't quite have that same impact.
CP/M... yup. NBI machines, Xerox 820, and my own Kaypro II.
I had my Kaypro attached to this...
Yes... it's a Wang.
