My opinion on this, is as follows. If you want to use Linux, put it on a PC, unless you have such a high intensive application that truly needs the power of Risc. Solaris will run better on Sun Boxes, AIX better on RS6000 and pSeries servers and HP-UX on HP9000s, than its Linux cousin. You will get better support by going with Unix on these Risc platforms. Ask me in another year, and I may change my mind.
