General Unix "Hewlett-Packard is rolling out Update 5 for the HP-UX Unix operating system that runs its Itanium and PA-RISC lines of Integrity and HP 9000 servers, keeping to its pattern of two updates per year for its flagship operating system. As has been the case with the prior HP-UX updates, the changes are important to existing HP-UX shops, but they're probably not going to cause a stampede of buyers for HP-UX systems. It's no different with the updates to IBM's AIX or Sun Microsystems' Solaris Unixes do."

What's with all those anti-Unix moods? Or is it just common Linux fanboyism? ;) I could write an article about how many SPARC boxes we bought this year at our shop, but I don't think you're really interested in the topic. Just repeating that cliche that most of people here like, right?
