Download of the day: IBM AIX 6 beta

last updated in Categories Download of the day, UNIX

Do you own IBM hardware such as IBM eServer p5, pseries or intelliStation POWER workstation? IBM is now offering the AIX 6 as a open beta software for testing. It appears that Linux has changed all the rules of the game 😉

From the IBM announcement web page:

1. Almost anyone who is interested will be able to download and install a pre-release version of AIX 6. By contrast, only a few clients would have the opportunity to test a new AIX release in a traditional beta.
2. Participants in the open beta will not receive traditional support from IBM. Instead, you access a Web forum to discuss questions and issues.
3. The only legal document required for participation in the open beta is a “click to accept” license agreement that clearly states all program conditions.

  1. i can’t download. =(

    You don’t have permission to access /iwm/web/cc/earlyprograms/ibm/aix6beta/ on this server.

    1. Don’t be a jerk, AIX beta should still be availible. If it isn’t all you have to do is tell the guy.
