Nope, AIX 1.3 is readily available. It's over on if
you know where to look along with a rather massive amount of documentation
and (VERY HANDY) installation instructions. I can confirm that it will work
on a stock IBM 8580 and you can get several different flavours of window
system if you wanna roll that way. I put a video on Youtube a few years ago
of a running machine when it was still rather badly configured. I briefly
had it working on the model 55SX as well but because I was not labling the
disks as I wrote them I went out-of-sequence somewhere and frustratingly
couldn't find Disk 15.
