IBM "IBM has radically improved the bang for the buck on its Power7-based Power Systems 701 and 702 blade servers this week, and is expected to soon deliver similarly priced entry rack and tower servers. And now it has a new, lower-cost AIX 6.1 Express Edition that will match the less expensive hardware and therefore help Big Blue's AIX platform better compete against Windows, Linux, HP-UX, and Solaris alternatives. The new AIX Express Edition takes the special low-cost pricing that was available only on JS series blade servers and now makes it available across the Power Systems line, including logical partitions on the largest Power 595 (and before too long Power 595) servers."

There used to be an AIX version running on x86 processors. The last version was 1.3 running mostly on IBM's old MicroChannel-based PS/2 line of PCs but also their earliest PCI-based PCs.

Great? Have you ever worked with AIX? Be thankful that it's only on IBM System p.
