Having interacted with @bmoshix, I'm taking his "mainframe" answer to
mean that it's probably either (one of) his zPDT / RDz (IBM's answer to
Hercule) -or- one of the physical mainframes that he has access to /
time on. I'm now sort of betting that it's Linux running in an LPAR or
as a z/VM guest.
You can probably glean more information about the mainframes that
@bmoshix owns and / or has access to by watching his videos on YouTube.

I doubt that he's ashamed of it in any way.

Something you buy from IBM? ;-)
I'm going to say something that runs a mainframe OS.
This includes IBM's zPDT & RDz which are software emulators. It also
includes a P/390-E, et al., card that has a physical S/390 processor.
I bet that Hercules qualifies here too. But that's an /emulated/
mainframe. Much like zPDT & RDz.
