Free Mainframe COBOL Developer IDE

If you are currently logging onto a mainframe to do COBOL application development, you now have access to a free graphical editor.  Visit and download your own copy of Micro Focus Enterprise Developer for free!

It works with either Eclipse or Visual Studio and is 100% free.  Use it at work or take it home.  It beats the heck out of logging onto TSO and won't require you to go get a purchase request approved by the bean counters. 

For those of us who are a bit thrifty (you know who you are), it could also make a great Christmas gift for your cubicle mate!  Then they can't say you never got them anything. *grin*
