IBM AIX

I've started to learn about AIX this last week. The version I have been using is some what antique, and doesn't come with all the mod cons one would expect in a modern Unix OS like Debian GNU/Linux, but with the kind help of others it's possible to install the extra bits that are missing.

A little hunting around the IBM site shows that the later versions are a lot more civilised than our version. The sad thing about AIX is that IBM are going to let it gradually fade into obscurity in favour of Linux. One can only hope that some of the good bits do leak out into Linux, no matter what SCO say.
