Does Linux/Unix run on the 7012-340 as well or is it strictly AIX? (more
curious than anything)

The Apple Network Servers were just rebadged RS6k's -- they even ran
AIX, although IIRC only 4.1.4 and 4.1.5 since they were discontinued
so quickly, and even then not exactly *stock* AIX. They'll run Linux
quite happily, I'm told -- this might sneak under the 10-year rule,
but Terrasoft, that makes the Yellow Dog Linux distribution for
powerpc, managed to get a whole bunch of ANS700s and is selling them
as servers at <http://www.yellowdoglinux.com/>.
