There may be a "straight unix port" for the System/370, but AIX ain't
it. The earlier IX/370 product may be closer to a straight port, but
is probably even less easily found than AIX/370.

"AIX looks like it was implemented by a pretty smart space alien who
heard Unix described to him by a different space alien, but they had
to gesture a lot because their universal translators were broken."
