Good question, Patrik. I can speak to this from one direction, as a member of the CAAC. I don't know, but I believe that there is not an equivalent of the various advisory councils in the other divisions at IBM, whether AIX or mainframe. These councils include CAAC (COMMON America Advisory Council). CEAC (COMMON Europe Advisory Council), LUG (Large User Group, which is a separate corporation, I believe), and the ISV Advisory Council. The first 2 - someone who knows the history better, please correct me - they were started as joint efforts of IBM and COMMON. LUG, I don't know who started that. And ISV Advisory Council is an IBM thing, inviting various vendors to participate - I was on it when working at RJS Software.

People in this community are generally very passionate about the IBM i and its predecessors, and IBM does respond with passion, as well.

Well, we could also look at it this way... AIX makes a good test case for migration before getting to the stuff people are passionate about, like IBM i.
Why do you assume the AIX guys are less passionate about theirs than IBM i guys?

:wq! PoC
