The problem is most AIX groups only have a clue on IBM hardware.
I don't see any reason Power architecture would be dropped in 4.2.x.
I was still running RS6000/550 systems and seeing no problem upgrading them
to 4.2.x.

Probably you'd find the 4.2 stuff would work (depending on if there were any
Apple specific device drivers) that weren't on the CDROM.
