General Unix The IBM AIX operating system has kept to what's important: stability, functionality, robustness. And it has done it by keeping a strong command-line interface (CLI). If you never learned to use the CLI or need a refresher on its basics, read on.

I assume they don't give a tutor in AIX's registry (!), or other oddities of it's implementation of Unix. :-)

Um, it certainly didn't talk about anything but the Korn shell, a common feature to all modern SysV Unix. Care to tell me where it brings up AIX's quirks?

No wonder I was having problems with vi years ago when I was a grad student and I would switch between a Sun workstation running SunOS and an IBM workstation running AIX.

Korn shell is not AIX ...

Well, well - what's got Korn shell to do with AIX? It's as if writing an article about Linux and focusing on bash. That's, I am sorry to say so, rubbish. Even tho the Korn shell might play an important part on AIX, it's still the Korn shell. And not AIX.
