Linux When it comes to the fast-moving business of trading stocks, bonds and derivatives, the world's financial exchanges are finding an ally in Linux. As late as 2007, Wall Street exchanges were still largely run on Unix . . . Over the past few years however, Linux has crept into this market, showing up first in ancillary systems and then running a few core exchanges.

You can blame us for not having proper drivers for Linux...

But my point was not about what is better, my point is that Linux is a major competitor to AIX and zOS. Specially zOS, less so to AIX.

PS: They still get to pay those humongous license fees on mainframes. Since it does not matter what OS runs, licensing is done for hardware and clock cycles...
