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.

Maybe IBM isn't getting the ROI that they were expecting with Linux and decidied to spend some of their money on AIX instead. And maybe their customers are not satisfied with Linux on Power and want AIX instead.

Either way it sends an interesting message to the world.
