    Linux: it's the last word on AIX vs. Solaris
ZDNet's Paul Murphy posted a series of blogs on Solaris vs. AIX over the last week, starting out with discussing what one would do if facing a data center choice between IBM's AIX on Power offerings and Sun's Solaris on SPARC. He mentions, "Sun's stuff is... as up to date as the partner's own website, where IBM's approach leaves you to first find, and then grope around in, the vendor's website looking for a current product write-up." He goes on to cover various Solaris vs. AIX considerations in each subsequent post, including an examination of the technologies, personnel, price/performance, threats and Linux on Power. Overall, he lists out many pros and cons for each side and doesn't definitely define a one-all be-all best choice.
