Well, what have you tried so far? How many Google queries have you run.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

This is a good all around primer to start - goes into basics about how to get around the zOS environment and accomplish basic tasks. It also provides a good overview for other areas of exploration.

Good Luck!

Why ask the question when it is answered 2 posts above your question?

As NicC says, you should retrieve and look through the document from several years ago.

This site, a sister to our site, has links that you might find useful. Mainframes, which pretty much predate the *nix (Unix, Linux, and other systems with a similar look and feel) and Windows type systems have a very much different look and feel. Much of this is because of the limited hardware capabilities in the late 1960s and 1970s dictated this environment. It has been retained not so much that it is "better" than the *nix or Windows environment but because its users can be very productive in the environment.

OS/360 from the 1960s is the ancestor of MVS and z/OS. Truly, it was the first disk based batch oriented operating systems. DOS/360, the ancestor of z/VSE, was not truly a disk operating system. Rather is was a development of TOS/360, a tape resident operating system, very much in the model of running IBSYS/IBJOB, another tape system for earlier systems, on disk.
