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.

The United States has been here only a little over 200.

Actually, the US only got involved in the 'world politics' in the last 50 years, up until then it was a benign power which kept to itself, worked with other nations, but pretty much kept to itself.

As for the US - it pretty much only has itself to blame - a people that are insular and ignorant of issues beyond their borders, a governmental structure which lacks accountability when things go wrong - aka, the Iraq War and the constant push 'n shuffle of responsibility between politicians - all forgetting that the VAST majority voted for the war in the first place! and hypocracies which place higher value on complaining about side shows like same sex marriage and abortion, than the REAL issues like reducing government debt, creating new jobs, decreasing costs on businesses, freeing up the labour market, and reducing red tape.
