I agree with this.  Everything IBM that's not AIX or Linux is just 
SO COMPLETELY ALIEN that it ends up being very enjoyable to learn about
something from scratch with no preconceived notions.  It's fun to go 
into something as a COMPLETE BEGINNER.

Even AIX hits that point at times.  "What do you mean its best to use 
SMIT for everything?"
