NetRexx, the JVM hosted runtime for the Rexx programming language designed by Mike Cowlishaw, has been open-sourced by IBM. Rexx is a scripting language which precedes Python, Ruby and other popular scripting languages by over a decade, and was originally designed for running on mainframes (VM/MVS), but found popularity in OS/2 and even AmgiaOS 2.0 under the name ARexx.
