Well, sort of. AIX has a custom kernel, but was
designed to be easily
ported to other architectures - namely Intel architectures. This is
Erm, methinks this copy of AIX-PS/2 I have is older than any RS/6000...
so unless they used AIX on the RT/PC (which I don't think they did),
I'm going to go with "ported to other architectures - namely POWER".
My PC/RT runs AIX v2.2.
I _think_ AIX-POWER predates the PS/2 version, but I'm not certain. I
would be glad to compare system file ctimes on the relative releases, if
I had a copy of the PS/2 distribution.
Hint, hint, wink wink....
Remember AIX is *any* *IX that IBM sells/sold. There was also an
AIX/370. There was little to no code sharing between AIX/RT, AIX PS/2
(AIX/370 and AIX PS/2 actually shared alot of code -- but that was on
purpose -- they were designed as complimentary products) and what we
know and love as current AIX on POWER and PPC.
