[Exploring mainframe] z/OS on Hercules (links only) - need to buy z/OS

After reading many pages, it is possible to run z/OS on Hercules.  However, you have to purchase z/OS in order to use it.

I don't know how I can purchase it, or know how much it is -- so the search stops here.   Found some info, http://dtsc.dfw.ibm.com/MVSDS/'HTTPD2.ADCD.GLOBAL.SHTML(READM22B)'
$900/yr.  Seems like it's similar to MSDN.

Just leaving some links I found on this posting, so later if I can buy z/OS, then I can install following the steps.  I can still use dev environment at work.
