Amusingly the internal links for "PHP" and "Perl" are dead on:
http://www.oss4zos.org/mediawiki/index.php?title=Looking#Featured_Software

[whereas "Ruby" has a page which is "Not currently available for z/OS."]

And http://toolbar.netcraft.com/site_report?url=http://www.oss4zos.org
say "OS Linux", so it's not very dogfood either.
