Yup, it must cost them a pretty penny to maintain all those proprietary
operating systems (especially when you include their mainframe ones). I
suspect that Linux will eventually replace i and AIX -- eventually. But
I bet there are some significant clients who are still willing to pay
money to keep them going.
