I couldn't agree more.  I've worked with a lot of Unix, and Unix clones 
in my day.  I feel fully justified in this statement, after my company 
purchased an IBM training card for me a couple of years back, which was 
essentially as many IBM AIX/p-series classes as I could fit into my 
schedule in a 1 year period.

IMHO, AIX is a recursive acronym like GNU.

AIX = Aix Isn't uniX.

I've done AT&T Unix, several BSD's, some linux, SCO, Solaris && Sun OS 
(4.x), NeXT, SGI Irix, Interactive Unix (before Sun bought them), and 
I'm sure there are a couple I've left out.

And as bad as SMIT is, if you click the option to see the command being 
executed (within SMIT), I find it difficult to believe that anyone other 
that the most die hard AIX fans would be able to pull them off.  But 
then again, all the AIX only admin's I know love SMIT.

/rant off    :)
