Don’t fret, once OpenVMS v9.0 is released, on x86-64, there won’t be any doubt as to who won.  :-)

Oh, and while I’m at it, both vi and emacs suck.  Give me TPU! :-)

In answer to the original question, Cameron Kaiser used to be heavily into Mac Workgroup Servers running AIX, but I don’t think he’s on the list any more.

In the long distant past, I used A/UX on Mac IIfx systems.  I used AIX on a variety of IBM systems, more recently, but never on an Apple system.
