While I think there's probably very interesting work in mainframes, I would be terrified to actually move my career in that direction. There's far too big a chance that 10 years down the line, my experience has become useless and there's no work available for a mainframe programmer. I don't want to obsolete myself by spending a lot of time in a stagnant technology with a shrinking install base.
