Darn. I figured as much as far as being licenced, but figured I would ask.
I really wanted to take a look at the AIX version of unix.
I don't have any of the original hardware, I assume there was a straight
unix port for the system 370, but i have enough native hardware that runs
unix i might as well not bother with it in emulation.

There are a bunch of software kits for the emulator online, ill take a look
at some of the ibm specific software to see what it is like.
