COBOL COMPILER FOR ZLINUX | Advice

A Search390.com user asked:

"I've heard rumblings about CICS being made available on Linux for
zSeries. Does IBM have any plans on releasing a COBOL compiler and
runtime for Linux for zSeries? If so, which (if any) current IBM
COBOL compiler might it be "based" on (IBM Enterprise COBOL for z/OS,
IBM COBOL for AIX, or perhaps something else)? If not, then what
compilers might CICS for Linux support?"
