"Generally speaking, it is easier for Solaris administrators to make the transition to Linux than AIX administrators because there are more files that need editing on both Solaris and Linux. Both Solaris and Linux are also more command-line driven than AIX.

If you were using Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL5) on an x86 box, you would be using Red Hat's Xen-based virtualization process (see Resources for more information on Xen). On System p, you'll be using the same PowerVM™ that you are using on AIX"
