I've used all of those Unices and many more, and I disagree.
AIX is no more different from Solaris as NeXTstep is. In fact, I'd say
it's different in many of the same *ways* from Solaris as NeXTstep is.
I think the root-cause of your dislike is that you learned AIX from
classes. IMHO, that's not the right way to learn Unix. I learned AIX
by exploring it myself, so I think I've come to a different perspective.

I couldn't disagree more. I admin AIX for a living now, and I find
myself learning a *lot* of those commands. I'm not chained to smit.
