IBM Unix isn't a flashy market. But what distinction there is has been going to Sun Microsystems lately, by making its Unix-based Solaris operating system available as open-source software. Last week, IBM moved to put its AIX Unix operating system back on everybody's radar by revealing plans to create a development center on its Austin, Texas, campus to speed up AIX development.

IBM can not be trusted. This is the best example of why. The billions to linux is marketing to get ibm global services in the door. Maybe they are going to spend 200 million on open sourcing AIX but I doubt it. It looks like they are getting ready to abandon Linux. They are supporting solaris on blade centers for christ sake. We should not trust them

Trust? What does trust have anything to do with it? You are getting to use an OS for free so shut up! Its IBM's money they do whatever they want with it! Honestly when is the last time you have contributed to the Linux community as much as IBM has? I am not defending IBM or anything like that. IT is just that I dont get what trust has to to with IBM spending money on AIX development and on Linux.
