Why Linux on z rather than on another platform?

Considering that Linux was introduced on Z back in 1999 that question appears a little late in the day, especially as the total number of MIPS that run Linux has been growing steadily at a 45% CAGR.

However, I imagine the question you're probably asking is why would it be considered today, for which I can give you a very simple analogy....

Is not the Range Rover the best commercially available off-road vehicle in the world?
