I've worked extensively with Solaris, IRIX, Linux, and AIX for over twenty
years (not Linux - only since release 0.9?) - and in my opinion, AIX has
features that from it's inception were better than it's competitors - Logical
Volumes when no one else had them - and SMIT - which made system
administration simple. I've worked with AIX on accounts which had migrated
from mainframes to AIX - and was pleased to find it could scale to meet the

Many of today's *NIXes have caught up to AIX in features and function - But
that doesn't detract from its essential qualities and history.
