 Comparing Linux and AIX

"AIX runs only on IBM's own hardware, based around the POWER family of processors, of which the POWER5 is the latest. (Apple's G5 chip is the baby brother of the POWER4.) Pretty much all the adapters and components that run in those servers are either made or rebadged by IBM. In the past IBM has almost given AIX away, making money from the hardware and services instead of the operating system software."
