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 http://online.microfocus.com/Enterprise-Developer-PE 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*
