I’m still running two machines with AIX PS/2 version 1.3.3 from the 90’s. I transfer and work with many Gigs of information on these machines each day. And once in a while i sometimes have to do an fsck or fscorrect(maybe once every 2-3 months) on the working partition, and as a last resort i can just reinitialize the partition. The system partitions have never needed maintenance.
PS/2 Pentium 60MHz, 64MB ram, 2 GB boot drive, 4x4GB data drives.
I just wish i could play with the newer versions and the nice PowerPC/Power Machines they have.
I think you just pointed out why AIX will be around forever. And thats not a bad thing.
