General Unix Even though the old-world UNIX operating systems, like IRIX and HP-UX, have been steadily losing ground to Linux for a long time now, they do still get updated and improved. HP-UX 11i v3 is supposed to get update 4 tomorrow, with a host of new features that won't excite you if you're used to Linux, but they're still pretty useful for HP-UX users.

Somewhere, there are 8 sysadmins in the world who just got a big smile. everyone else has moved on (yes there are still plenty of instances of HP-UX around, but if HP had their way there wouldn't be.

I know that, I am an OpenVMS sysadmin (as well as many other things), so don't assume please ;) .

still, HP-UX has been in decline since 2006 and sontinues to fall faster each year.
